Some days it's hard to know what's a mountain and what's a molehill. Or how one can become the other, or one perhaps should be seen differently.

The Purple Mountain Majesty in my smoothie takes to to the place of beauty and awe - Paradise Valley. Can't say how many trips through there I've taken in the last 33 years. But I swear, the views and the light and the sky NEVER repeat themselves. Every trip, every view, every time - it's a new snapshot.

Maybe there's the lesson. Yesterday held trying moments. Challenges of opinions, time, space, communication, decisions. Support? Encourage? Discourage? Listen with empathy? Voice an opinion? Be vewwwwwy quiet? Step forward? Step back?  By the end of the day, there were still questions. 

The morning comes, and brings new light. New energy. The mountains of yesterday subside back to molehills. Molehills of today stay molehills. Even if they become mountains, chances are, they're not here to stay. Just like the light in Paradise Valley. And the weather in Montana. Wait a few minutes, and things will change. Most of life is not black and white. Not so rigidly defined. Sometimes, it take a gentle lesson to remind me of that.

The Blueberry / Strawberry / Soy Milk Smoothie - reminds me of landscapes in Montana - Paradise Valley to be exact. I may have to use this as an inspiration for decorating some pottery.
