Go forth my little explorer. Lose yourself in the smell of the woods. Feel the mud on the pads of your feet. Drink cool water from the stream that crosses our path.
Run up ahead, turn around to make sure I’m still with you. Climb, bound, leap, and climb some more.
The higher we go, the more at peace you are. Perk your ears forward at the sounds of nature. Track the chipmunks climbing the trees.
Keep on going up my little explorer, this is yours. When we get to the top, see the world way down below. The world that, if only for the moment, you’ve conquered. Fearless in your pursuit of adventure.
I’m just here to follow you along the path. I’m the driver that brings you to the base of the mountain. I’m the pourer of water, feeder of snacks.
Go forth my little explorer. This is your adventure, I’m just happy to follow along.
