Ever New

Maybe people flying in the Sahara find it ever new, changing not just with the seasons but continually. We enjoy the desert, but for us the constant newness of flying the SB area is sometimes almost overwhelming. I enjoyed a deep delicious sigh just now, simply from thinking about how much we like it. 🙂

1017 Toward Carp

With so many fascinating things spread before your gently moving gaze, new details always emerge. Like how the creek colors change as it no longer meets the sea. Our eyes and hearts stretch to take it all in, triggering an endless flood of memories from familiar places we’ve stood looking up. As with all beauty, it is the complex emotional response within us that distinguishes it from other perceptions. There, I just sighed again… 🙂
