Campbell Falls – A Two Minute Meditation

By Andrew Furst @a_furst

This was stop number two on a waterfall trip the first weekend in March out in Western Massachusetts. I may have visited Campbell Falls 30 or so years ago. Part of this trip and my affinity for waterfalls has emerged from the quest to find this particular one.

My band had played in Litchfield Connecticut and we spent the night.  The following morning our hosts brought us north to a waterfall.  My memory has a few cascades, each leading to a pool and feeding the next drop. The weather was warm and we splashed around and soaked our feel in the pools. We’d often spend our days hiking before and after our gigs.

Campbell Falls seemed to be on the map close to where we probably were that day.  But I left unsure.  It might have been, but probably not.  But, it was worth the trip.

Out searching
for a memory
from youth.

30 years later,
In the lineup
the suspect may never be found.

All this time
more memories made

These videos are produced for those of us who spend an inordinately large amount of time in the cyber-world.  They are not a substitute for unplugging from your devices and taking a stroll near trees, water, or a patch of unkempt grass.  Getting out into the world - touching, smelling, hearing, and seeing nature is the best way to reconnect with our prime purpose.  

What is our prime purpose? We are feeling and sensing machines.  We are the universe looking back on itself. We are witness to the wonders and dangers of living in this corner of the cosmos.  We are the seekers looking for connection a little further beyond yesterday's borders and boundaries.

But sitting and staring at the screen robs us of the sustenance that we rely upon for wonder and sanity.  These videos are an opportunity to bring the sensations of nature to you, while you're in the cyber-world. Its an opportunity to relax your gaze, resettle your posture,  and regain some depth in your breath.  Listen and watch the video and allow your self to open up and recharge.
