"There are few experiences more grounding or more peaceful than walking through snowfall in the dark." That resonating line was written by Mark Jenkins, a climber and writer. He excels at both.
Below is the piece from which that line comes. He wrote it a while back and it's stayed with me. Mark describes an experience with meditation and climbing that would be uncanny if it were not so commonplace. You can insert "running," "kayaking," "cooking," "golf," etc. for "meditation." Any activity that puts you in a present state of mind will do. Cleaning the house does it for me as well. Of course, I completely share his connection with climbing and meditation.
