I think these videos help put things into perspective. Sometimes when you’ve got your head buried in your work and/or in life in general, it’s important to step back and forget about the minutia or strife in order to remember that we find ourselves in a physically beautiful world. Two of these videos view earth from space. The third is a time lapse of various landscapes in the state of Oregon. I’ve not yet been to Oregon (though I will visit there in a few months), but the larger point is that we are surrounded by pieces of nature that elicit awe and wonder.
It really is a beautiful world.
