A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 264: Illustrated Quote for Thursday

And into the woods

Today’s illustrated quote is based on words by Scottish-American naturalist John Muir, known in the U.S. as “the father of National parks”. I love the play on words here as so often “lose my mind” has connotations of going crazy. But the idea that you could lose your mind, as in a release of all that stuff that swirls around in your brain, by venturing into the woods and, as a result, find your soul, is something I deeply understand.
