Ah the beauty of nature, flowers, landscapes, architecture, exotic locales, art captured in photography, in our special place of the mind that pleases and helps us recall special times in life. I appreciate such recollections that draw out the times in life that were ‘perfect’, bittersweet, crazy, sad. Often they help us center on where we want to be and who we want to be.
Maybe odd for most of you, but this image of me holding a beautiful Kamloops’ Trout draws forth blissful recollections of life and being centered with nature, self and life in general. The beauty of the trout and the recalled euphoria over such encounters sustain me through the routine, the mundane, the treadmill of life. It prompts me to not just wish I could escape, but to actively plan the escape.
