I believe in living life the way that you want to live it every day, and if you do that, you don’t really need to have New Year’s resolutions. Tom Ford
I love our cover image this month. Dorothy Eberhardt’s Smith Rock Snow to me represents a new perspective on the familiar. Looking at something as simple as our iconic landscape changed by snow and ice translates into a meditation on other aspects in our lives that have become routine, and resolving to learn how to see them with fresh eyes once again.
Instead of waiting on the new year to make a fresh set of resolutions, deciding to do things differently or make some much needed changes, why not throw that out the window and meet each day with the intention to great the familiar with a new perspective.
Take a new route to work, wake up at a different time, walk the dogs in a different part of your neighborhood. You might discover something new or find a new appreciation for what has lost meaning in routine.
Central Oregon is brimming with events, and I bet you can find something to do on our calendar that you have never done before. See our community from a different perspective by attending a new event.
Resolutions don’t always stick, so don’t make any. Just try a new perspective.
