I was going to sit and write some thoughts for The Campsite readers this holiday. Then, today, one of the bloggers for Highline Magazine submitted something to me that seemed to capture everything I wanted to say, but she probably said it much better than I could right now (and probably ever). Months of travel and being on-the-go followed by a week of submersion into the deep waters of “work” have left my brain the consistently of lentil soup (I still have Nepal’s dhal bhat on the mind). That, and Carlyle has an incredible way with words! So, without further ado, here is the link to this holiday blog from Carlyle Norman, The Sound of Silence, wherein she reminds us to take a moment to breathe amidst the craziness around this time of year. Enjoy, and thanks Carlyle!

Author’s Note: Less than a month after Carlyle wrote this post, she was tragically killed in a climbing accident in Patagonia. Her words in The Sound of Silence now stand as a testament to her passionate zest for life. Her passing is a reminder of the importance of enjoying each moment and taking time to breathe.
