Give me summer at the mountain. Give me a fifty shades of green and a plethora of color from God's palette. Give me the shady embrace of the trees that invites my spirit to be reborn and rejuvenated. Give me children riding their bikes along the semi-closed side road that protects the mountain from interlopers.
Give me the beauty that is hiking along the ridge and the face of the mountain. Give me the dignified grace and haunting melodies that the mountain speaks to everyone on a minute-by-minute basis. Give me the quiet pedestrian walking with their significant other or friend, or perhaps pushing a stroller or carrying a child on their back.
Give me the cool gentle breeze that blows down the mountain, with just enough scent to lull my senses into a happy complacency. Give me the rustling of the branches and the gentle swaying of the leaves. Give me the a cappella multi-part harmony that lullabies my body towards someplace else.
Give me a cloudless day. Give me a breezy sunny day. Give me a cool shade during the hottest days.
Most importantly, let me give thanks to the mountain for giving me back....me.
