Quiet Paths 
I navigate quiet paths.
From source to sea, and coast to coast
I drive to borders, both North and South.
Run high peaks and swim in valleys.
I visit cities, deserts
and people that I miss.
It is between these big canyon walls,
the murky water, and on long narrow trails
where strangers become close friends. 
Each step along this crooked trail
is in the direction of people
and places that feel important.
