One Cobble at a Time

Beauty Where I Stand

Sandra Tayler's Journal

A cobble by itself is just a small stone, but when many of them lay together they create a path . My life is made up of many discrete parts. I have to find ways to fit them all into place so that I can continue to journey where I desire to go. This journal records some of the cobbles that create my path.

Beauty Where I Stand

Sometimes I forget that I’m surrounded by beauty everywhere. It seems like I have to go someplace special, and away, to find lovely things. It is not true. Here is a shot I took from my car while my daughter was driving us along the freeway. There are some unlovely things in the photo, but look at that mountain.

Everywhere in Utah, there are mountains. Sometimes they are distant on the horizon, but where I live they are right there. You have to look up to see the tops of them. I can get to a mountain by driving for a mere 10 minutes. My world is full of small beautiful things too. This next week I’m going to try to notice more of them.

  • Mountains

    I love our Utah mountains. I don't think I'd like living anywhere where there weren't mountains close by towering protectively over me. It's a lovely picture.
  • That is beautiful! One of the things I love about living here is the mountains and the beautiful views. Okay, that's two things, but the mountains are why the views are lovely! From the parking lot of the grocery store - a majestic location - I can see across two mountain ranges, all blue in the distance. It makes me happy.
  • Yes, Utah has some gorgeous country -- I've been through a couple times, and did a work visit for a week one time. I need to come back and climb some of the cliffs out there.
  • Yesterday, I was out and about with my semi-daughter, Rae, and we were pleased that it was a clear, sunny day in Seattle. Must have been out of tourists, I suppose.

    We remarked on a hill that we could see both Mt. Rainier and Mt. Hood, as well as the Cascades and Olympics. Not all at once, mind you, but it did give quite the view. I do understand the thought of beautiful scenes.
