Creek & Cradle
I use this blog to curate and collect what inspires me. It almost completely consists of reblogs. If you enjoy it as much as I do, I'm flattered!

Let Spring in.

// #springishere Oconee Station State Historic trading post, South Carolina.

Far and away.

// #adventureseeking Lake Keowee, South Carolina. (at Lake Keowee)

Aim to be known not by what you’re against, but what you’re for.

// #seeknewsights Middle Saluda River, Jones Gap State Park, South Carolina.

Don’t be afraid of the silence. Walk alone in the woods sometimes.

// #takethetrail Paris Mountain State Park, South Carolina. (at Paris Mountain State Park)

It is the romance of a ‘Cruiser that gets me. This is the vehicle that roamed the pages of my Grandparents National Geographic collection. It’s not the car, it’s the adventure it represents.


I forget the names of towns without rivers.
A town needs a river to forgive the town.
Whatever river, whatever town—
it is much the same.
The cruel things I did I took to the river.
I begged the current: make me better.

Richard Hugo, from “The Towns We Know and Leave Behind, the Rivers We Carry with Us,” in Making Certain It Goes On: The Collected Poems of Richard Hugo (W. W. Norton & Co., 1984)

Not a cat fan, but this is still a beautiful picture.

Um, big cat fan.
Kind words are like honey - sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
Proverbs 16:24 (via kvtes)
