Just taking a moment to reminisce: I distinctly remember the feeling of flying back into Los Angeles after living in Germany and Poland for eight months. I loved traveling all over Europe. I loved the old buildings, the quaint beauty, the amazing architecture. And as I flew into L.A., I remember clearly how much I loved seeing the modern buildings. Those cityscapes that had always seemed so ugly and streamlined were suddenly beautiful to me. New.
I often find myself wishing I could live in the country settings that some of you live in. Or in the weather you get to enjoy. The fall. The spring. The crisp air. I have to remind myself to live here and to live now. And although I still do prefer the wilderness adventures we go on, when we went to the playground, I reminded myself to seek the beauty where we live. It wasn't the natural beauty of the meadow or the creek or the beach, but there is art everywhere, if I remember to look.
I hope you'll find some beauty somewhere today. Happy Labor Day!
