Having What You Need

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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!

  1. Wonderful MargeKatherine…thank you for sharing the open spaces where you live. It takes me to that place ~ away from where I live surrounded by buildings of a big city. One thing I really liked about living in Napa, Ca was there was so much beautiful land, of vineyards all around.


  2. Oh, MargeKatherine, I saw that first photo and burst into tears — I miss the Rockies so very much, and I might easily have driven right through the spots where you took these lovely photos. Thank you for the (slightly bittersweet) reminder of that place I loved.
