Where Lands Meet Sea

We have always gravitated to the shoreline. We have an urge to seek out this place for its beauty and promise of possibility. This boundary’s horizon gives us hope for what may come, but also diverts us from where we are. With our eyes fixed on this expanse we are misled from our present. A unique quality of the aerial perspective is that it has no horizon, no figment to distract us. This viewpoint allows us a moment to objectively see where we are.
