Sometimes I am so focused on exploring places I’ve never been that I forget to appreciate the one I’ve called home for the last 22 years: Oregon. I took this photo about 60 miles east of Eugene. Although I’ve lived in this state for a while, there still remain rivers I’ve never listened to, mountains I’ve never laid eyes upon, and, perhaps most importantly, people I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting.
Amid the familiarity, there are perspectives I can take which haven’t been taken before.
As long as I am capable of changing my veiwpoint, I am capable of changing my reality- of surroundings, and of life.
