Sometimes travel can be limited to only a few miles, but the results can still be satisfying. Studying the familiar from a new view point or in some new light, can provide the same experience as seeing something completely new for the first time. The thrill of discovery in the common - even mundane - that surrounds us is elusive, but worth the effort. Some describe a fierce discipline of paying attention to the world around us, not only for the better photograph or the better poem, but for the better life. That, after all, is the wellspring of all our creative endeavors.
