“Quietly the spirit and beauty of the mountains fill my heart

I open to the awe and sense of discovery

I feel free and alive and at peace And nearby, I hear God saying


Do you want to play!

“Just remember Fievel – one man’s sunset is another man’s dawn. I don’t know what’s out there beyond those hills. But if you ride yonder… head up, eyes steady, heart open… I think one day you’ll find that you’re the hero you’ve been looking for.

Jake Foerster 8/14/91 – 8/21/13″
