Cheaha Creek, Alabama

This is Cheaha Creek, and this is certainly a waterfall, but it’s not Cheaha Falls – those are further upstream, and fabulous. It was this little fall that caught my attention. Like anyone else, I always love to see the big-named sites. Who wouldn’t want to see the spectacular waterfalls of Yosemite, Yellowstone, or Niagara? And I have! As a mindful person, however, I am often attracted to the side lights – the indirect, the less pronounced, the softer tone to speak to me individually. It’s there I find my own meanings and pleasures. To each one of us is given the task of finding their own spring in which to drink deep.
