Last I posted I wrote of being familiar with the world and needing to find something new. While I stand by this idea, I feel something was lacking. Rather than becoming familiar with how the world is, it is more likely, I have limited my perception and slipped into viewing the world through too narrow a lense. This is something we all do and to no fault of our own. Learning HOW to see what we are looking at takes time just like everything else, and perspective is an ever evolving thing.
I left Chattanooga yesterday and made it about an hour and a half outside of St. Louis before calling it a night. These long drives, solo across the country are more time to reflect than most people are willing to take, and without exception usually drive one mad! So far so good on this one though. It seems I am growing accustomed to them. I am just across the border in Nebraska now and should arrive in Utah some time tomorrow if I keep up the pace. Snow reports for the week look great and I can't wait to see what the terrain is like!
