Part of the beauty of being an outdoor enthusiast is observing and participating in the eternal cycles of nature. Recently I attended Easter Sunday church services with my son, son-in-law, daughter and grandkids. As I observed my grandkids participating in the celebration of The Risen Christ, it struck me that a generation ago it had been my children who were participating as small children and that a generation before that it had been me and my brother and sister learning the eternal story. In another generation it will be my great-grandkids learning about the conquest of death.
