We are Home
I'm still unpacking, doing laundry, shuffling through the piles of stuff. I haven't even started going through my photos yet, but I did download the one above, taken in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California several days ago. I made Ray stop the car out in the middle of nowhere so I could take a picture of that vast expanse and those snow-capped mountains and that one moment of my life in June of 2011. We were on the last part of our trip, heading toward home. I was clicking through pictures in my mind and attempting to make sense of all we had seen. I always find that traveling opens up a part of my brain that looks for patterns and truths in the experience of new landscape. Proust said, "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
I'll be sharing some of those new landscapes and perhaps what I saw through new eyes in the coming weeks. Right now I am too tired. Happy we went. Happy to be home.
