The quote, "Do one thing every day that scares you" was first presented to me in the popular 1998 song, "Everyone's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" by Baz Luhrmann. While true origin of the quote is debatable, I've found that this saying has stuck with me as a personal motto (most days) and I frequently pass it on as advice to other people. This blog is my attempt to capture and chronicle "the one thing every day that scares me" in 2011.
On my flight home from the snowy land of Texas, I faced fears and intimidation by asking the flight attendant if I could change seats in order to take some last minute sunset photos. She surprisingly smiled, and said, "Isn't it gorgeous?", as she pointed me to an available seat on the west facing side of the Embraer. Despite feeling like the ultimate tourist, I took some pretty cool photos from my new vantage point and enjoyed the much improved view immensely. While the photo above isn't the most brilliant sunset I've ever seen, what I do love about it is the way the dark space looms over what is left of the sunset. I've never seen anything like it before.
