“You need to occasionally untether from the world and just experience yourself. And not just yourself, but like experience yourself in a place where you’re insignificant, which is the important part. And that only happens in the outdoors. Like one time said that on Twitter. I was talking about this with somebody and I just said that through all these sort of materialist minded people. I’ve never seen mountains scattered across a pile of bones, you know, but I’ve seen the inverse a million times. And you know, it might sound silly and overly, like, maybe even too flowery, but I really think it’s important to to spend time in a place that God made. And it’s not just because it humbles you. It does that, but also because it reveals what creation really is and what your role in that is.” — Veteran, author and storyteller Braxton McCoy
