There is this view of the mountains in the Shenandoah Valley that I always return to during periods of stress. Well, I don’t know about you, but 5 days in bed with fever and hallucinations sure counts as a stressful period for me. I must have visited this mountain a dozen times during those five days … and at times it was so real I could swear I was there and that I was not dreaming. I still don’t know what it is about this place that attracts me. All I can really recall is stopping along the drive while a kid and getting to see this mountain with hawks flying high above it.
