But it's nice to turn off the podcasts that I like to listen to, as well, and simply be present.

This morning's walk, along the French Broad River, in the Biltmore Estate brought many moments of observation, from the clouds to the sunflowers and meadows. It's an excellent out and back from Antler Hill Village around the lagoon to return ~ about an hour plus 10 minutes.
Thanks to the wealth of George Vanderbilt, and the stewardship (and business acumen) of his descendents, these viewsheds and riverfront access has been preserved and made accessible via trails for those of us who are passholders, a privileged group, too, to be sure, as well as the daily visitors.
It was a joy, under whatever circumstances, to walk in this wonderful landscape this morning.
