Solace overlooking the city

I’ve been telling myself I should climb Mont Royal for the past semester or so . . . I never seemed to have the time. So, instead, today, on a whim, I packed my water bottle and batteries for my camera, and went for a leisurely stroll up the glorified hill that I semi-mockingly call a mountain.

What struck me was the peacefulness of it all, the grand scope. Even with all the bustle of people, it was still calming and imposing. The mountain cares nothing for us; we are transient, it is lasting.

I may not worship, but I feel awe in a place of grandeur, and Nature is a far better craftsman than Man.
