I wrote about where I get my inspiration in my last post, and here is a video that actually inspires character motivation. I am always so moved by these time lapses of stars that are so well done, I feel as though I can reach out and touch the sky. I look at the stars at the great "nowhere" that feels like home. They are the face of oblivion and I want to go.
So I did it!! I traveled 650 miles from Los Angeles, CA to Provo, UT in my Honda Civic. I have the mileage clips to prove it! This is my journey from home to the hotel and back. I'll be blogging about the conference itself in the next week and tell you about each presenter! But for now, here's my goofy video on the way there!
Emma, Alley and I often take walks and find ourselves trailblazing. This was one of those times. I often find myself drawn to the path less traveled, literally and figuratively. When I travel paths like this one in the literal sense, it's partially because I like to see where the road goes and what new sights I'll see. It's intriguing and wild and I find the solitude relaxing.
In the figurative sense I don't mind going down the path less traveled because I know I can always go back if need be. Walking trails, in nature help get me out of my head and enjoy the sunshine. It's a clearing of the mind, much like sleep. I'm refreshed and can go back to work. It makes me love what I do and allows me to keep my enthusiasm for writing.
Where do you like to go?
The Los Angeles Natural History Museum has an impressive amount of dinosaur bones due to the La Brea Tar Pits. They opened an excavation site for volunteers to chip away at the ground right next door to the museum with a path leading you to digs and archeological finds. The dinosaur hall and the history hall are across from each other and this time when we went, we got to see "The Silk Road".
We couldn't film or photograph the exhibit, but they only thing I found most impressive was the ten foot long loom. There were artifacts and interesting tidbits about the silk road; what it was like to travel on, how long it took and why people traveled that far on foot, etc. however while I found the details interesting, I thought the displays were wonderfully done, carefully arranged and respect the organization and time it took for this event. So much history was packed into the making of "The Silk Road" and I enjoyed their exhibit.
