Nature Pouring Out

"Fall Creek Falls" by Wes Aldridge

Today concluded our company retreat at Fall Creek Falls. I thought it only proper to give a glimpse of the park's namesake waterfall and share its beauty.

It is wonderful to be out in and a part of Nature. To witness something as amazing as this sight, and to realize it is much larger than one's self, is extremely powerful. I am a country boy from Tunnel Hill, Ga., and I love nothing more than to walk through the wilderness with my camera in hand. I feel everyday is a ticket to an adventure and I try harder than anything to cash my ticket and take that ride on a daily basis. There is a vast importance in exploring and seeing things of this magnitude... to be a part of them for a sliver of time, just for a moment. Every moment in life is special and I want to taste and savor it for all it is worth. Today, looking at this magnificent waterflow, I tasted a little of what life is all about.

I make it a point of my existence to search and share what I see. I feel there is so much to share, and much, much more to see. I want to do it all, see it all, be a part of it all, bear witness and tell the story of all I encounter. I want to do something that matters.
