I am someone who always returns to the same place. Mostly because of comfort and history. But lately I have been looking at maps and topography. I’ve become curious about new areas and remote places. A different town, new back roads, getting lost. I try hard to suppress prejudice and expectations and instead allow each discovery to be its own.
There is always a reward. It could be the view or the way an intimate path cuts through the dunes. It could be seasonal, like the way the salt marsh grasses change with the seasons or how beaches shift with surging storms, feeling vast. A new perspective, nonetheless, challenging my views, etching new lines.
