The Power of Perspective
The natural state of things, or how I've come to think of it.

Perspective is only as powerful as the ingredients we choose to lace within it. The same can be said for our food, our time, and our daily habits.
If we were to think of perspective as something concrete, maybe it’d be a bit easier to
understand the effect it has in our lives, as individuals, communities and as a whole.
The beauty that lies within “perspective” is that it isn’t concrete. It is allowed to evolve, change and empower. If allowed, it will shift.
A change in perspective is more often than not, unrelated to gentle, easy, or in an instant. To begin it demands your attention. There are times when we are offered a gentle shift in how we view or perceive things, yet it still requires that we pay attention.
The direct connection between paying attention and perception is undeniable, especially in nature. I perceive our lives are a journey to and through a change in perspective.
In nature, and on the pursuit of harvesting wild game I am naturally who I always have been. The connection I find in nature is one that I cherish in bits and pieces, for now. With each outdoor endeavor I am offered a new perspective.
“The wildest scenes had become unaccountably familiar. I found myself, and still find, an instinct toward a higher, or as it is named, spiritual life, as do most men, and another toward a primitive rank and savage one, and I revere both.” - Henry David Thoreau
