"There's roads and there's roads
and they call, don't you hear it?
Roads of the earth
and roads of the spirit.
The best roads of all
are the ones that aren't certain.
One of those is where you'll find me
'til they drop the big curtain."  ~ Bruce Cockburn from "Child of the Wind"

It's CDPBlogger's first of the month theme day, with participants exploring the idea of perspective. This shot is from the perspective of the bluff in the Magnolia neighborhood, looking out over Puget Sound, Bainbridge Island, and the Olympic Mountains. Sometimes I just need to take a big breath and step back in a natural setting to gain perspective of what's real, what's important. I was tempted to feature a photo of a local friendly cat from the ground up to offer some "purr-spective," but we could all use a view like this right about now in our day, couldn't we? :-)  Check out other City Daily Photo blogger's interpretation of this theme.
