A PATH BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD

A special recitation by Nimblewill Nomad
Video by George Orozco of Seattle, Washington
 

George is an Ultra-Distance Runner, looking to soon thru-hike the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail. A special thank you to George, for the time and effort taken to put together an image and music background for the Nomad's recitation of this poem/prayer.
