Be free.

You guys, I am being super cliche like a million other girls on Tumblr that put a quote over a landscape photo. But I can't even help myself. Because I think the landscapes here in Boulder are so dang beautiful. And they make me hopeful and nostalgic. And sometimes, when I look at the mountains or a perfect sky, it resonates so deeply that I feel a tinge of yearning. 
And I want to hold on to those moments because they are so beautiful. But I go back to my office job and the moment has passed. And I try to squelch whatever that feeling of longing is until the next moment when a rushing creek or snow-capped mountain takes my breath away. And I guess, overall, those moments are enough. But sometimes it's not enough, you know? Because underneath the daily motions, there is this desire to be free. Free of what? I am not even sure. I just think - I am not living to my full potential. Did Einstein feel free? Did he feel like he was fulfilling his potential? Did he embrace the whole of this world? Does anyone?

Okay, I'm getting too existential for this blog. Thanks for letting me write, friends!

I couldn't decide which quote/photo I liked best so I will let you choose your favorite. Feel free to share these around the internetz but link back, please!

I think text over a landscape will never get old for me! This is a great post, I feel like I need to be a bit freer (if that makes sense) myself. It's the things we think we have to do that make us the most tied down.


Thanks for the lovely images!

i had to come back and comment on this post because it really resonated with me. i too live in an ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL place and sometimes when the sun is shining on our balcony or when i'm standing at the top of the little mountain next to our building, or when i'm downtown looking out into the inner harbour....i just feel "hope" and "yearning" but also happiness and like i am the luckiest person in the world. (you have to understand i moved here from toronto three point five years ago and when i think about the absolutely boring scenery/landscapes there...i kind of want to cry!)
