A prayer to the mountain-

Do not let it be simple,

nor easy,

let it be full,

full of excitment,

full of mystery,

full of wonder,

full of love,

when it comes time to choose a path do not send me down the way of the many, do not send me down the road less traveled, but let me wander with and open heart,

let if be full,

full of intersting people and intersting places,

let the rivers and the mountains and the trees of the forest be my teachers and my friends,

let there be magic,

let there be dragons,

let there be a world full of unknown for me to explore.
