“Distance has the same effect on the mind as on the eye.”- Samuel Johnson
This past weekend, I had the immense privilege of visiting Greece with my family.
I learned so much while in Greece, watching and listening and absorbing pieces of a culture so vibrant and important to our history. I especially loved watching my boys (all 3 young ones and my husband) soak up the Indiana Jones type world we explored of Ancient Greece. And I as I think back on the trip, I know I gained something big … something of a fresh and deeper perspective. Because somehow, when I step away from my routine surroundings, a new way of looking at life comes.
I love that gift, of gaining fresh perspective. Don’t you?
This week, I am hard at work on edits for my work-in-progress novel. I feel renewed from the fresh shift in perspective.
I feel fueled by the rich colors of Greece, and by the 2500 years of history I was able to feel there.
More photos to come of Greece in weeks to come …
And I have a question for you: What fuels you? What refreshes your perspective and brightens your work and days?
