The Water's Edge
Welcome to this week’s Goodnote. Today I’m sharing five original pieces interwoven with a few of my favorite digital oil paintings. If you enjoy today’s shorts, I would greatly appreciate it if you shared them with just one friend.
Somewhere high up in the mountains—on a lake in Hallstatt, Austria—lives a girl who skips stones every Saturday afternoon. She takes a walk down 100 steps down to the water’s edge, never letting a single distraction keep her from her favorite weekend activity.
There are corners of the world where we weren’t designed to thrive. From the frozen tundra to breezy Sahara dunes. But human beings are curious things. We push boundaries and live life on the edge. Outside our comfort zones, we discover our limits; those limits make life worth living.
In Oahu, there’s a remote beach secluded from every tourist; the perfect escape for a winter retreat. A walk down memory lane provides an important reminder; the best-kept secrets are never left unkept.
As children, we experiment often. Exploring new things teaches us to fail fast and as a result, we learn faster. Later in life, we fall down less—but it doesn’t have to be that way. Keep trying new things because beginners-at-heart have a winning mentality.
In Japan, at the top of a hill, stands an old temple overlooking Mt Fuji. There, for over a thousand years, people have traveled in search of peace, purpose, and meaning. All of the people that opened their eyes discovered something profound. Answers, hiding in plain sight.
