Ithaca is “Gorges”

Today we stood at the edge of the world. Felt the rush of falling water fulfilling its divine destiny. Watched the green earth rise up toward the sky, arms outstretched toward heaven. And I felt just a little bit closer to God.

Because somehow, somewhere in the roar of this creation I was finally able to just be still and listen.

Today I hope you marvel. I hope you stop and breathe and listen. I hope the world around you opens up to boundless opportunities. I hope you walk in light and bathe in unthinkable beauty. Today beyond all days… I hope you take the time to really live.

    Gorgeous photos! I have always wanted an "Ithaca is Gorges" t-shirt :-) I especially love these pics because I adore waterfalls and tend to have an especially hard time looking/walking away from them!

    Stop being so adorable! It’s distracting me from the serene beauty of the summer waterfall… Stop it!

    Glad you stopped to enjoy the moment, and to just take a picture for the sake of taking it. Those moments are amazing.
    (oh and thanks for rocking the Poland Spring Water, that is a bussiness that is critical to our local economy!)

    Man you were in my college town – brings back memories of when Jeff and I would meet up for a lunch date and hike down into the gorge to eat – very very happy and sweet memories. Hope the wedding was wonderful. xxxooo
