Taft Gaden - 3 - A Lesson on Letting Go

Chief Yellow Lark

"Oh Great Spirit - whose voice I hear in the winds, and whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me. I am a man before You, one of Your many children - I am small and weak. I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Made my hands respect the things You have made, my ears sharp to hear Your voice. Make me wise, so that I may know the things you have taught my people - the lesson you have hidden in every leaf and rock."

"And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair" - Kahlil Gibran


Yellow little sunflowers

Sparkling rocks

Sunlight blanketing treetops and bushes

Dead leaves

Falling leaves

Students in hats, carrying books

Hazy sky





Wind on face and in hair

Grass in my fingers

Chills (shoulders, spine)


Watermelon (just came from lunch)


Foggy mind (need more sleep? too much concentration?)

Slight fear of upcoming Organic Chemistry Lab (in 10 min.)

Thoughts on how to improve mental clarity and improve mental endurance
