HOW TO BE IN THE MOMENT – 101 Little Tips

 TIP #102 (Bonus)
Be creative in choosing your vantage point.


Nature doesn’t necessarily keep regular hours, and, in general, She’s pretty shy. But there are things you can do to better your chances She'll reveal something really amazing next time you’re out and about:

    •  Head for places that are hard to get to. This means—if you’re able—
        hiking a little further, climbing a little higher, paddling and portaging
        a little more.

    •  Go when other people don’t; if summer’s the most popular time,
        go in the spring or fall.

    •  Get there early or stay late.

    •  Find a point of view others may not have imagined.

    •  Finally, if you don't succeed in evading crowds and canned tours,
        rationalize.
After all, people are part of Nature too, right?

You must be familiar with the artist, Dewitt ----(can't remember last
name right now, it might be something simple like Jones) who was a photographer for National Geographic and did a film about "The Next
Right Answer"...basically about changing the persepective of how you
look at things and opening up whole new worlds of possibilities....Ask
Sally!

Nancy -- Dewitt Jones. I've used his quote often, in both my blogging and my book.
"You've got to believe it to see it." I find this applies to my life, and it's clear you subscribe to it too.
