Out here, I am nothing and I am everything.
This unkept earth and wild water wash away my successes, my sass, and my silver tongue along with my failures, my hang ups, and my chaos. I lose myself out here; it’s scary and it’s wonderful. When I’m in nature, I want to let go...let go, let go, let go.
Earth magic makes me loosen my grip on the identity I’ve worked so hard for and remember my place in the whole. Out here, I am not this body...this name, this pen. Out here, I am nothing and I am everything.
