Most Alive Monday: Sacred Mountain
you always find one you can't forget.
Even when you're somewhere far away
the color of those rocks
and how the light shines there
and you'll know that's where you ought to be
because in some strange way, the mountain is your home.
May your path lead you there...
At the edge of the mountain a cloud hangs.
And there my heart, my heart, my heart, hangs with it."
- Tohono O' odham as told by Byrd Baylor (From a very beautiful book entitled "The Way to Make Perfect Mountains: Native American Legends of Sacred Mountains") Cinco Puntos Press

*About Most Alive Monday: I've decided to make at least one "most alive choice" each day and post my favorite each Monday. This, of course, is to motivate me to consciously "live juicy"! I hope you'll join me and share your "most alive moment" in the comments section so we may inspire each other.
You may also post photos of your "most alive moments" in my most alive flickr pool! (If you post a photo in pool, be sure to include your link in the comment)
