Erosion can be beautiful.
Erosion is a word that often carries negative connotations. At least, the words often used to describe erosion are so mechanical and permanent. It means that something is in the process of being removed, lost, or perhaps eliminated.
Erosion is constant.
This picture popped up in my “on this day” feed yesterday. It was taken exactly four years ago, during a field trip to Point Bonita. It was one of many that I snapped during day-hikes along the trails from Hill 88 and Rodeo Beach.
This picture reminded how quickly, or how slowly, things can change. It all depends on your perspective.
Four years ago, I was in a very different role in education. I was worried what I would lose if I were to switch roles, or switch districts. My world would change dramatically, and I would lose things!
4 years later: those things I’ve lost were insignificant. They disappeared quickly and without regret.
The best part? Their removal has shaped my landscape, and it’s really nice view...and it’s a process that is ongoing.
Erosion can be powerful.
