Flashback Friday

This is a flashback from two years ago on a great trip up to the wine country with a couple of my favorite people. This trip was first chronicled in the Three Part Banana Slug Chronicles.

I love you guys and look forward to doing another trip some time in the future!!

3.a visible scene, esp. one extending to a distance; vista: a perspective on the main axis of an estate.
4.the state of existing in space before the eye: The elevations look all right, but the building's composition is a failure in perspective.
5.the state of one's ideas, the facts known to one, etc., in having a meaningful interrelationship: You have to live here a few years to see local conditions in perspective.
6.the faculty of seeing all the relevant data in a meaningful relationship: Your data is admirably detailed but it lacks perspective.
7.a mental view or prospect: the dismal perspective of terminally ill patients.
8.of or pertaining to the art of perspective, or represented according to its laws.

This is a picture my mom took one one of my parents' road trips. I think it is a great visual representation of the idea that we need to look at everything in perspective. We are influenced in our decisions on where we've been (review mirror), where we currently are (view out the window), and where we are going (bend in the road up ahead).
