February 2023. Yosemite National park has always been a place I enjoy calling home. The valley floor has shown me the ways that nature can be both a safe space and deceiving. There was a rock slide on day 2 of this trip. Nobody was hurt. These last few weeks, I've been reflecting on my experiences on what makes me feel safe. Today I found my answer: Community. Plain and simple, feeling connected to places and people that support my growth and make me feel connected to all that life brings, is what bring me joy.
