The "Light Gets In!" blog has moved, and is turning a corner ...
Field Trips for Grown Up's"
is a fun new book -- close to publication -- all about the joy of getting out there, looking up, and seeing the delight, wonder, quirky, inspiring, and hilarious world we get to live in.
Fully illustrated and with some inspiring words to prompt you to look up, look around, explore, indulge your sense of curiosity and wonder about the world, the primary focus is on stuff to do in Colorado.
But hey, Owen, Marny, Heino, Brenda and John, Deborah, Martha, Lars, Suzanne, Julie, Ann, and Linda... from Illinois to Jerusalem, Estonia to the west coast of Sweden, and from Texas to Santa Barbara, Maine to Montana, find the local equivalents and write your own book of Field Trips.
Field trips are simply going places, getting out, looking, observing, wondering. I don't want this to sound onerous, too seriouus. But I do mean to encourage more than a drive by! Don't just look at a tree. STAND IN ONE! Yes, stand IN the tree. Let it all in. And push yourself to find new places, spaces, people, food, experiences that expand and increase the breadth and depth of life.
New experiences teach us new and significant stuff about ourselves. "Life begins right beyond the edge of your comfort zone."
At the same time, as a good old Girl Scout, I remind you to "make new friends and keep the old..." Sometimes your comfort zone is the best place to be. So go there. Be there.
LOOK UP! See the stars! Look up and see what all is out there. If this universe is purposed for anything at all beyond it's own internal development, I say it is purposed for pleasure. Wonder. Awe.
