Sometimes we get so caught up in details we forget the long view. Only occasionally do we get a glimpse of the future but we can always step back and take a look at what we know and what we do in the context of the overall picture of our lives. I treasure the times I have begun to understand the longer view of life and how the puzzle of daily life fits perfectly into the pattern. That is probably why I keep coming back to the Grand Canyon. It is a perfect place to be reminded of the longer view of life.
