Trees in a far off horizon

Driving out into the Glades a few weeks ago, I almost came to a stop in the middle of the road. Off in the horizon were lone stands of trees stark against a background of low lying clouds and fog. The dreamy gray beauty reminded me that I was alone, but not alone. In the seeming emptiness, for a moment, past and present intersected and I was reminded of something I had learned before. Everything we do affects the Earth and each other. Driving, breathing, walking, playing. No matter how small the action, it matters.
