Today I have been to Heaven. I didn't get there for the sunrise (as shown in the picture above), but I watched the clouds create patterns in the sky and aspen leaves sift to the ground like snow flakes. It is my most beautiful place on earth because my father walked the forest and his father before him and his father before him. My children and my children's children run in the woods, chasing squirrels, looking for wild bunnies and gathering huckleberries. Six generations have loved the earth and received of its power. The land connects us to one another and gives us a sense of place - our own Heaven.
