"Sehnsucht"

Bierstadt Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park

There are moments when the beauty of the world is so great that our hearts begin to ache. The deepest longings within us are awakened and tantalized with expectation. It is like we begin to awake from a dream and start to remember something, something important about who we are, something we have lost. You can almost touch it and then it vanishes leaving only a deep feeling of indescribable longing. The Germans have called this feeling, "Sehnsucht".
