Oh.

Away.

Away….away….away.

Like a moth to the flame…but restrained….flying close but never to…flying….watching….knowing…knowing what’s out there and wondering if anytime is going to be the good time… flying in place and wondering how it would be to wake up with a different breeze blowing across my cheek.

Or…maybe I’m just sitting watching YouTube videos about cool places…videos that actually fuel a visit….or a MOVE… to a fresh place.

Or….maybe I’m just watching videos.

I suspect that it’s probably the last thing….just watching videos.

Now that I think about it a little, though, I really shouldn’t hype Idaho too much.

I might get everybody who reads this out on the road….flying themselves into the heart of the candle flame….flying to something pretty amazing…flying to the land of good potatoes and magnificent vistas.

Good grief…it’s so….beautiful.

Idaho is pretty incredible….beautiful enough to stand out in a country chock full of “beautiful”.

I live in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to….soft hills….big views….green and welcoming and….really….when you think about it….if you aren’t lost and caught up in an endless rhododendron thicket and trying to get your bearings….pretty easy and forgiving.

It’s not hard to live where we live.

Loving where I am doesn’t mean that I don’t hunger for something like “the West”, though.

Watch some of this video….you’ll see what I mean about Idaho.

It’s a hard Shangri-La.
