V is for views – all kinds – all places.

From the Missouri River Valley to the Badlands of South Dakota, the top of the Rockies, to Paris, France, and the mists over the mountains of Jefferson National Forest in Bland, Virginia to Mount Eden in Auckland, New Zealand.

Wherever you are right now, look around you. What do you see from your vantage point?

Is there a beach near you – a vineyard – a mountain – a volcano – a forest – a lake – a river – a skyline of fabulous architecture? Or maybe your view is of a log cabin, a simple cottage, a community store, a field of wild horses or wildflowers.

Some of you celebrate the fantastic old barns or spectacular ‘barn mansions’ that you live near. Others of you post pictures of the beautiful birds who stop by for a visit, or the animals that you see on a daily basis.

Whatever you are blessed to have as your ‘view’ today – even if it is the fireplace in your den – spend a few moments thinking about its significance in your life.

I’ve included a variety of my favorite views.

Enjoy!
