My husband and I live in southern California. My daughter and her husband live in Portland Oregon. There is 1,000 miles in distance. We visit each other several times a year and go places together. My “wish” or “desire” has been that we live closer together. We could just hop over for dinner. We could have a game night until late, and still not too far away to get home. We could go for a walk and talk about everyday life. With technology, there’s no limit to send a text, get on the phone, or skype. Yet, there is nothing compare to being close by and able to do thing spontaneously.

Our chorale group and the orchestra had a musical performance at the Nixon Library at Yorba Linda, California. From the entrance of the main building to the Ballroom, there were flags lined up against both sides of the walls. I couldn’t help but had a sense of reverence as I walked through the hall to enter the Ballroom. Before our performance began, I stepped outside to the garden. There were walkways on each side of the fountain, and the shrubs were pleasantly well maintained. The outdoor hallway along the main building is decorated with large pots of date palms next to each of the ceiling to floor windows of the building. I enjoyed such a refreshing sight before our performance.

“Trees of Mystery” is a privately owned attraction located in Northern California. Paul Bunyan is at the door to welcome you. My baby daughter was modeling to compare the size of Paul Bunyan.

There is a story about a little boy who lived in a village. One day he climbed the tree all the way to the top. To his surprise, he saw the ocean and could see all the way to the horizon. What a sight that changed his life!
Our mental ability is powerful beyond our imagination. As we gain new knowledge and insight, it brings us to a whole new horizon of the outlook of life.
When we traveled to different countries, we looked out to the ocean, new horizon came into sight.
