Even writers (at least this one!) need to spend time in that place beyond words – both literally and figuratively. Because it’s in that space that the words re-germinate to later resurface with an increased depth and beauty.
My place beyond words last week was Mt. Ranier in Washington State. My niece at one point during our mountain hike said “there’s a blog post in this” and she was right… but in this case words fall short and photos take on the challenge of expression.
I have digitally retouched almost every photo in some way as my attempt to portray visually my inner response to the outer experience of nature’s soul-shaking grandeur. I offer those photos here in the hopes that perhaps you too can touch that experience of a “place beyond words.”
