“Beauty is in the eye…”
Living with chronic illness teaches you a valuable lesson:
Find the ‘positive’ wherever you are at!
It took 20 years before I began to see the allure of the desert.
As a child growing up in Northern California, visual beauty was everywhere; the mountains, the sea, the dark soil.
As an adult living in Arizona, I’m forced to dig a little deeper…
But it’s there…all around… I simply have to…look.
For Mother’s Day my brood (husband/2 grown sons/2 rockin’ daughter in-laws) took me 90 miles North to a spot near Camp Verde called the ‘Bull Pen’.
A series of watering holes nestled in the canyons East of the highway.
Dusty back roads, rocky paths, and narrow canyon walls hide magical spots of enchantment that teach the type of impacting lesson only Nature has truly mastered how to deliver:
“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
