Silver Falls State Park - Magis




If you are inclined to pay attention to St.Ignatius, you'll get the magis. If not, let's just say that in the fall it seems that the earth always offers more.

And, to my personal way of thinking, the moss-encased branches so prevalent in Oregon seem to belong to a stage set for Wicked. One expects to see Elphaba behind every tree trunk.

Fall is stunning - the pictures are beautiful. I agree about the trees being perfect as a stage prop. You'll have to talk more about magis. Did you feel closer there or am I totally missing the point?

KJ, magis means more - in Ignatian-ese, the concept of always asking, What more can I do for God? In the fall, it seems to me that the earth is asking and responding to the same question.
