Having What You Need

Driving to the library yesterday with my handy-dandy new camera, I stopped several times along the way to take pictures of the things I see on a daily basis. This library is 10 miles from my house (heading EAST) and full of wide open sky, rolling hills, farm land, old houses and mountain views.

I understand that I need this open space. I need to see the mountains and be surrounded by miles of sky. I realized that what I have is what I need. Not sure if that makes sense or not. I could not be happy in a city with buildings all around. I want to walk down the street and see the mountains. I need to be able to hop on a trail and move. I surround myself with the things that make me smile – books, learning, open spaces, friends, strangers (soon to be friends…)

And in having what I need, I have these lovely photos – all taken within a 10 mile radius of my pillow. I hope you enjoy!

Passion, Energy, Learning

What are you passionate about?

I’ve asked myself that question time and again and discovered the answer is found in missing blocks of time. What is it I do where I forget about time? What is it I do that makes me wonder how I spent the last hour or afternoon? When I discover the missing time blocks – then I’ve uncovered my passion.

For me, it’s being surrounded by books. It’s sitting in a library. It’s being in a bookstore. It’s walking. It’s hiking. It’s looking at mountains. It’s learning Adobe InDesign. It’s writing in my blog. It’s taking photos with my handy-dandy camera that I keep close at hand. It’s sharing what I know.

That’s who I am and what I am passionate about.  I love what the internet offers. I love finding web sites that inform, teach, educate and engage. When I find these types of pages I want others to see, know and learn too.

I’ve met some amazing people via my blog and I continue to learn from them. Their ideas, suggestions, struggles, successes, joys and challenges delight me in ways it’s hard to describe.

It’s a fun journey that sucks minutes from the hours in my days – minutes that teach, entertain and delight.
