Spinning round and round through nothingness – in the vast emptiness of a relatively vacant universe, in a lonely, remote and insignificant galaxy – is a nearly perfectly rounded sphere weighing 5,972,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons.
It moves in an ever so slightly elliptical orbit around a comparably small star we call the sun, which has a core temperature of 27 million degrees. (It chills a little at the surface to 10 million degrees.) And lo. Here we are. Mere infinitely microscopic fractions.
We at The Park on Main® know what you’re thinking: why are they talking cosmology and about that elusive ball of fire in the sky forever hovering nearly 93 million miles away?
Because the heavenlies – and their blistering incomprehensibilities – convey something more to us than mind-bendingly long stretches of numbers that make even mathematically inclined minds wince.
Because this is spring; we passed over the calendar’s edge last Friday. Into hopeful spring. And then, some months later, we rage into summer. And we never fully slow down long enough to consider that another autumn and another winter await in the distance. As if it matters – and it certainly doesn’t. Spring in Highlands, North Carolina has something to do with glory. It has to do with breaking away from the chatter of everyday lives somewhere else to discover the rolling splendor that rests on a plateau somewhere in the Southern Appalachian mountains.
Come to The Park on Main®. Come to Highlands, North Carolina. And experience the unfolding of nature into precarious spring. Come. Be our guests.

The season of spring has been, traditionally, a time of transition; we leave behind those old things – those end-of-year holidays – and we prepare to enter something new.
Spring brings itself along, without our assistance. It moves and blossoms; it changes life’s picture into a vision of color and zest. Green becomes more vibrant, the reds deeper, the blues brighter and the yellows bolder and more joyful.
No more cold – at least as the permanent state of affairs. No more dreariness. No more stillness.
Spring is the time to move outward, upward and to trek through the zeal of nature reawakening. Spring is our time to remember we are merely human and we have another opportunity to explore yet another horizon. Did you find this article helpful and fun?
