Quiet Mountains & the Hum of a Past Fullness
The slow climb is one of intuition, it's a faded memory from childhood. Old paths and trails that steal away to peaks and summits. Far away from what stationed you in the present. And it's here with ladders and steps and bridges, it's here where you find a sense of solace. A softly mentioned recollection of mountain-scapes and distant memories. It's grandmother sleeping beneath the land, it's generations whispering in the water. It's fire that flickers a well-known story. It's songs in the dirt, the rocks, the mountains. And I'll find you here, the long way home. The one you only knew when you were asleep.
