If You Could See Forever

I have my opinion. If I could see forever, on land, figuratively speaking, I’d have a view like this. Thing is: in North Idaho, we have lots of views like this.

The other thing is: in North Idaho, the best views are owned privately and obtaining them takes a bit of cash, at least monthly if mortgage is the only way.

Does that keep us from the enjoyment? No. It actually helps the cause because seeing “forever” from your own private viewpoint where you can sit daily and during all times of day and night can be truly rewarding, internally generating and sometimes exhilarating.

Where’s Your Point of View?

Do you have a view? Is it far and distant? Or are you looking at a brick wall? Might be a thicket of trees, might be a neighbor’s house, might be anything. What is it? What are you looking at when you glance out your window?

It’s a question worth asking and it deserves an answer worth considering.
