Our Weekend Camping Trip

The woods have a way of putting everything into perspective. First of all, I could never create such beauty no matter what vision I might have for a space. Second of all, they're real. When you've lived a little, you start to see the arbitrariness in a lot of things. Why we do this but we don't do that, the distinctions and rules we make up in our heads. When you're just dealing in "real", (i.e. how are we going to stay warm enough to sleep outside when it is going down to 31 degrees tonight or how do we start a fire to cook our food when everything is wet) it puts things in perspective.
