But then I thought that wasn't very professional for my "professional" email box. So I went looking for a less personal, more professional-looking picture.
And I realized something.
Y'know those quizzes you see on Facebook- "Which Hogwarts House Would You Be In?" and "What Avenger Are You Most Like?" or "How Are You Most Likely to Die?" Yeah, those. Some have a question that asks you to pick the scene or environment you prefer the most. There's a picture of the deep woods, a big city lit up at night, a mountainside.
And I've realized something.
So do you want to know what these decisions have in common? What I realized?
First, something I've always kinda felt:
The city has exactly zero draw for me. I don't want concrete, glass, and steel around me.
It seems so busy and impersonal to me. Rushed, hard, and cold. No thanks.
But what about the prairie? Meh, it's alright.
The beach? Dunno- I haven't really ever been to the
beach long enough to feel much of anything.
I like the woods. It's quiet and green.... but something is missing.
I love the mountains in the summer.
I love the mountains in the fall.
I love the mountains in the winter (as long as I don't have to go in the snow).
Seriously, I don't like winter.
I love the mountains in the spring.
Yeah, mountains. That's Home.
