Autumn closes with the onset of an Alaskan Winter. The grizzly bear mother and cubs beat a hasty retreat and will soon hideaway from the harshest months. A raven soars past the mountain backdrop, heightening the sense of change towards winter.
I lift up my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth Psalm 121
Society speaks and all men listen, mountains speak and wise men listen
I long for the scenes where man hath never trod.
A place where woman never smiled or wept
There to abide with my Creator, God.
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept,
Untroubling, and untroubled where I lie,
The grass below - above the vaulted sky.
- John Clare, "I am."
