Build it up from Zero

the wilderness

Time in the non-linear world.  The coolest thing!  Backpacking, even better.  Here, build it up from zero…

phase one…

go out into the woods, or on the mountain, for a day

phase two…

go out into the woods and stay out there overnight — you come into the woods one day and leave the next

phase three…

go out into the woods and stay out there two nights — on the middle day, you wake up in the woods and you go to sleep in the woods

phase four…

go out into the woods and stay out there four nights — now the day in the middle is bracketed by a day on each side where you wake up in the woods and you go to sleep in the woods

phase five…

stay out longer and feel what it is to live more naturally

Now you are backpacking!  Now you are appreciating the wilderness, the non-linear world, as if you belong here!  Now the feel of the earth is not just “getting dirty.”  Now the trumpeting of the elk is more than a mysterious sound just after dawn, or the screech of an owl is not a kid screaming down the block in the city.

Now you are finding the true worth.
