Today I am facing a massive amount of homework, a pile of work projects, and a house that desperately needs cleaning.
During my short moments of “down time” what do all of these pressures turn to?
Thinking about the beauty of Texas, of course!
Having grown up in a fairly small town within the gargantuan state, I develope a disenchantment with the flat plains around me, the fields, the mass of open sky – and certainly with the heat (that remains mostly unchanged!).
However, after leaving and coming back, I’ve found I’m looking at things in this part of the country differently. The plains really aren’t so flat. The mass of open sky gives way to the most gorgeous showcase of sunrises and sunsets almost every day. Even the heat doesn’t seem so miserable! (A modern day miracle largely due to a few weeks spent in the Amazon.)
If anyone ends up reading this, I encourage you to take that second glance also and discover all the beauty around you that can be so easily forgotten through the years. There really is beauty everywhere, sometimes you simply have to take a longer look!

P.S. – Apologies for the shoddy writing, “down time” is running out and thoughts are racing back to today’s major priorities!
