I was driving through Washington yesterday, we started our trip in Renton and made our way down to Moses Lake; and in the process, we had to pass through the Cascades on our way there. As we drove, I watched as the exits flew past: Newcastle, Wenatchee, Snoqualmie, Ellensburg, and as we sped past each of these, Mt. Rainier loomed in the distance; her snow-capped peak standing tall and piercing through clouds, as the winding road passed through hills and valleys. As I gazed upon the jagged sheetrock towering all around me, I could not help but feel small. We've been told our whole lives just how big the world is and how much bigger the universe is in comparison But I've always had a hard time conceptualizing how infinitesimal and insignificant my existence is. So to be surrounded by thousands upon thousands of rock and stone that have withstood floods and storms and winds for millennia and still stand strong, well into the stratosphere, is nothing less than humbling.
