It's a beautiful world - Wes Carlson

Welcome to the site!

 

I’m lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of the world, the Pacific NW, where you never know what you might find when coming around a bend on a country road.

We live in a pretty charged up world at the moment…. making it all the more important to take the time to notice something pretty. It’s helps to balance things out. 

One thing I appreciate about nature, when you’re lucky enough to find a place without crowds, is that it’s easy to let the mind wonder. What was this place like 200 years ago? Probably much the same. It’s a grounding thought.

Can’t get outside of town? You don’t need to. Slow down and take a look around you.

Earth is a beautiful planet. Actually, I do have a point of view to express. Please do your part to take care of your environment. It starts at home. Recycle, use less plastic. Consider buying organic to help cut down on poisons. 

There’s a Willie Nelson tune I like that opens with “I’ve gotta a long list of real good reasons, for all the things I’ve done”. It’s a good line to think about.

A winter in Switzerland is something to behold.

I had the good fortune of living in the Alps for two winters as a young man. I wish every young person could do something like this. It helps open up your world view.

Leaving winter in the Pacific NW for the warmth of Maui is something to embrace.

“The fastest way to bring more wonderful examples of abundance into your personal experience is to take constant notice of the wonderful things that are already there.”
