This view used to greet me often. It is shortly outside the front door of the house I grew up in in northern Idaho.

One of the biggest things I noticed in our recent trip was how little you can see of the sky. Unless you're near the top of a mountain you can only see small amounts and it's rare that it's anything but blue or cloudy. This is on the hill behind the house I grew up in looking back at the mountain behind.
We took a vacation to the area where I spent the most time as a child. This image is the valley near the town Bonners Ferry in northern Idaho from a lookout off of the road down a small mountain. I hadn't been in that area in over 10 years so the change in perspective from child to adult is pretty dramatic.
Meant to be viewed full screen. At a tired little pond in the middle of a woods that no one ever visits stands a tiny little island with a couple lonely trees and while the others tire and rest for the winter there is still one that rages its color against the bleak fog of winter.Now Playing: Sonoio - Can You Hear Me?
It's light in here with a mother gone away, things seem much brighter when you see it all in grey. Simple rhymes have been moving through my head lately, little things that a kid could write but something about them is so enjoyable, maybe an endless fascination with Dr. Seuss from when I was a child that engrained his flow into my head.Now Playing: White Collar - Parting Shots
I'm back on the horse and riding after a brief hiatus. Caught this little yearling relaxing in an orchard today as he followed his mother and little brother who were extremely peaceful as they lounged about.

If you've been media blind then you may have missed the news that NASA recently landed a new rover on Mars that is equipped with more instruments and higher resolution cameras then ever before, this is resulting in some amazing images of Mars with clarity and detail never before seen by humans much less the public in general. I am a huge fan of the openness NASA has had with their missions as time goes on and seeing images like this makes my heart rate increase with thoughts and possibilities of a camera on Mars.
That said the main reason I wanted to share in today of all days is because they have released a 360 degree pano of Mars that just takes your breath away, please go check it out and share in the curiosity.

The little tendrils coming out of this flower remind me of the feathers sprouting from Natalie Portman in the movie Black Swan, one of my favorite movies of the last 5 years, if you haven't seen it then go quickly to a Television and experience it.Now Playing: Scissor Sisters - Baby Come Home
