I’ve never been much of a traveler though I’ve always felt nomadic as I traverse the landscapes of my heart and soul. Most of our travel is local, that is limited mostly to the state in which we currently live. Even so, we visit new terrain with a hike or photo shoot. It’s interesting to see places up close we usually drive by. Other times we catch the scenery in different seasons or simply in different light, depending on the time of day or night. We also frequent many of the same old places. There is always something that catches our eyes that never before stuck out. It’s often a matter of perspective.
Have you ever thought of looking at life or people like you would through the lens of a camera? Interesting what you notice when you zoom in. Also a huge difference when you look at someone you know well in a larger frame. Sadly, it sometimes requires a new perspective to appreciate the people in our lives. It hurts to be taken for granted, and when we realize we’ve done it to someone else we are generally plagued with guilt.
Wherever you are as you travel through your days take time to focus on whom and what you face. Open your eyes and look around. Appreciate those you love and those who love you. None of us will be around forever. Reach out and tell someone you care…it might be your last chance.
