Sometimes we need to leave home for a while to really appreciate the things we are familiar with. I love to travel, and love to see the sights wherever I go. But as much as I love to visit other places I also love to return back to the familiar.
As I drove home from the airport yesterday and as I looked out the window of my office I was reminded of the beautiful place we get to live in. Our home and workplace are ringed by spectacular mountains. This time of year they sparkle with a coat of snow. Each afternoon as I look east from my studio windows the mountains glow with the setting sun. I couldn't resist snapping this picture of Mount Cheam yesterday just as the sun went down. Today's sunset was just as spectacular.
I felt wonderfully comfortable and very much at home in an instant.
