Up on the Rock


To paraphrase Carol King…


When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the hill (stairs)
And all my cares just drift right into space
 On the rock (roof) it’s peaceful as can be
And there the world below can’t bother me…

Having been traveling down memory lane for the past few days, I was thinking of this photo taken with my cell phone while I was sitting atop this red rock terrace overlooking this vista feeling much the same way Carol King described in this song… There was nobody else around. I was there witnessing the momentous passing of the day amidst whispering breeze in my hair. It is hard to get more peaceful than that.

And every time the going gets tough, I would remember the feeling of sitting ‘up on the rock’ and all the cares would just drift right into space. I do urge you to try that sometimes.
