This month, the staff of the campus counseling center are hosting a 21-day gratitude challenge. Each morning, a new reflection arrives in my inbox - posing a question to think about, with interesting, touching or otherwise lovely addendums for inspiration.
One of the most recent reflections asked:
"when has nature taken your breath away?"
Instantly, I thought of this place in Luray Caverns that we visited on our vacation last month. I could have stood there all afternoon, mesmerized by the simple visual magic created when a shallow pool of water forms underneath a ceiling filled with stalactites and sits undisturbed by any air.
This is absolutely a moment of nature at its finest.
Tell me - when has nature taken your breath away?
