A recent trip took me out to the badlands of North Dakota. I never knew such beauty until I arrived. It was a unique beauty; simple and kind. A beauty that spoke so much yet existed in a whirlwind of silence. A calm that was never still, was always moving in the most organic way and never ceasing to captivate. This was a beauty that kept you on the edge of your seat and dancing on your toes. It is a beauty I will never forget.
