many mountains

My relationships to many mountains have formed my nature and personality, the physical features of my body and my visions. Within granite and dust I find the answers to many mysteries. Mountains are foundational to the cultures that surround them and give their gifts generously to all beings who drink from their waters, eat from their meadows and breathe their fresh air. We have grown up together and each new place I find myself in has a new mountain to guide me.  Whenever possible I make pilgrimages to return to my beloved mountains of the past and their inspiration is always with me. Whenever I see the mountain, I know that I am home.
