There’s a quote from one of my favorite Stephen King movies The Shawshank Redemption in a conversation between Andy Dufresne and Red that says:
Get busy living, or get busy dying.
It’s a phrase that comes to mind whenever I feel like I’m stuck in a rut. Over the past few years that has happened more than I care to admit. It’s in that time that I head over to a site a former co-worker introduced me to, InterfaceLIFT, and peruse some breathtaking photos. The bonus is that you can download images for your desktop wallpaper. I have quite a collection building (including the ones above) from some very talented photographers and skilled PhotoShoppers and they all cycle through in slideshow fashion.
These photos are what inspired my list of “must visit” locations. While I’ve been fortunate enough to make it to both Oregon and Hawaii, those were not the views I experienced. So, in the spirit of Andy Dufresne, I plan to rectify and continue working towards my goal of visiting the other locations. Get busy living.
