Wide Open Spaces

Two weeks ago, my little family of three loaded up the car and headed out west. We were meeting up with Dean’s siblings and their families for some sibling/cousin/meet-the-new-baby time over the holiday. It takes about 8 hours, assuming 2-3 stops to get to our sister’s house on the border of Texas and New Mexico. Normally, I’m not too impressed with the scenery in the western Oklahoma/Kansas/Texas area. I grew up in a place with hills and trees and creeks and rivers so the drive west can seem pretty bland to me. There is one good thing about flat, plain land, though. Sometimes it makes the sky seem huge. The picture I took while we were out there is almost symbolic for us right now. We’re feeling stuck in a rut, and lost in a tired routine. I love the wide open space of this picture. It makes me think of opportunity, and potential.

What about you? What does this picture say to you?


  1. I think the clouds look like a rabbit with wings! Do you see it?

  2. Haha! Yeah, I can kind of see that!
