Every once in a while, you see an image that is completely arresting and evokes very strong reactions in you. I happened to see one today. While casually looking at some desktop wallpapers, I was transfixed by this amazing pic - long rolling plains, with the golden-color grass and an occasional big tree. There are storm clouds rolling in the sky. Somehow I couldn't help imagining myself there, looking at the rolling storm clouds, being absolutely at peace and serene.
I can't imagine anything else making me happier than that. Somehow, that image - running through green meadows with wind running through my hair - always defined that ultimate freedom for me. I'm rather pleased to feel that I don't feel far from that dream. It's simple, and it speaks to me like no other riches do.
The freedom to dream your own dreams, do your own, meaningful work - peace through a sense of freedom, simplicity and feeling thoroughly blessed to be alive. It's amazing how a simple picture can trigger so many emotions. Needless to say, that image is my desktop background now. Looking at it brings me this enormous sense of peace and direction :)
