My paltry offering for the blog is limited to: The View.
I grew up in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. This was my view every morning.
I left the tribe 13 years ago and miss this place with every fiber of my being. It's like being banished from a home to where I can never return. In America, I bounced around from state to state (life of a college student) until I found El Paso, Texas (thanks to the US Army). I traded the jungle for the desert, but no where else in this country have I felt closer to home. This is my view now.
Mountain vistas and big skies inspire my writing. The majesty of it all encourages me to go further, dig deeper, and rise higher. At the same time, the beauty reminds me to slow down and appreciate the importance of living in the moment and making lasting memories.
