Weekly Post Challenge: “State of Mind”
I live in a big city but I’ve also lived in a small town before.
I love big city living more than country life but my experience with living in a small town that granted me easy access to the country has left me with a very strong appreciation for many things bucolic.
As to be expected, there are times when urban living becomes too stressful. I get angry with people and things around me that don’t seem to work to my satisfaction. Sometimes it’s because of them, sometimes it’s because of me and other times it’s a bit of both. I can always count on running to the country to ease my state of mind.
It doesn’t require much consideration. When I’m out there, I just look around; see the earth and sky, clear my mind and just breathe. No talking, barely thinking just defusing and reorienting.
This shot is exemplary of such a moment; such an exercise. When I’m centered again, back into town I go.
