With New Eyes
Yet while the developed areas were lovely, Richard and I were captivated by the wilderness surrounding the town. I did not take my camera on our hikes....but if you can imagine what a trail in Colorado looks like, or the beaches on Key West (exept with colder water), then you'll understand why we loved it.
And as I prepare to return to my other "home" in the south, I realize that the physical place where my resentment begins is really just a place. The resentment stays deep within, following me to new locations and exiles. Realizing this helps me to set it adrift in the sea of letting go. And remembering that my absence hurts my loved ones....that helps me to put things in perspective.
