Lookout Mountain Lessons

By Andrew Hunter

I envy the people who so easily block distraction out and zone in on who it is they love. There are those moments when they witness something beautiful together, where they hold each other and just take it in… I admire that. They realize they’re just there, with their significant other, enjoying the moment. It’s like they put the disagreements and quarrels behind and remember that which brought them together in the first place.


I’m lucky though. I have friends with whom I get to experience moments like a swim in a new river or seeing a famous DJ up close. It’s those moments I overlook when I watch a couple hold each other among the awe-inspired silence of Lookout Mountain, Chattanooga, Tennessee.
