It has been said a picture is worth a thousand words ...

I was taking a look at my profile and I realized the few photos included in my list are those I have posted in response to threads I’ve seen. Information unrelated to me. I thought to upload, and believe I can only do this trough a post, a few photos that tell a little more about me.

I’ve created this thread for that reason.

Others would be welcome to, are invited to, share photos to this thread as well.

Perhaps a start with the other side of ‘life on the road’. The travel and ‘sleep in your vehicle’ I have experience doing.

And my profile picture. A place where I find Peace, Happiness, ... Joy.

I spent some time considering this, what is ‘Happiness’, what is ‘Perfect Peace’ and perhaps ‘Pure Joy’.
For me, it seems, we are all in search of something. In search of happiness.
The question was, for me, what is that something?

Following quite a bit of thought I came to the realization that perfect happiness, peace and that joy I am searching for, may be seen as an instant in time. A few seconds in the day.

When standing outside, of an evening, waiting and watching for a sunset. A time without a need to hurry or be anywhere. A time of waiting. While watching the sunset I tend to see varying stages of “pretty”. It develops to a point where the colors are incredible, the view (and pictures others post) are amazing. There is a point where everything is perfect. And then from that point the colors continue changing and while still beautiful, are somewhat less so. Then the time comes where the stomach growls, or you begin to get cold or you realize you must be somewhere else. A time where perfection has passed and the present and ‘moving on’ is calling loudly.

For me the point of perfect peace, pure Joy, is found at that instant of perfection while viewing a Sunset. This can be a sunset at the beach or on a mountain. The natural beauty of the area can enhance. All, I find, is much better still when shared with someone you Love. Pure Joy in that instant in time.

This measure of peace and joy and happiness can be found in other things, in other times, other places. A newborn child, friendship, in achieving something new. But in this sunset I find a sense for what that feeling truly is, ‘pure joy’. Awe and amazement and a feeling of being truly happy.

I wonder, where is that point of true happiness for you?

The picture you mention was taken by Chris Burkhard, a photographer who inspires.

That particular picture was taken in Switzerland, I believe.

Chris’ images caught my attention before I went through the process of considering ‘Pure Joy’, as mentioned.
He later did this Ted Talk which struck a chord ...

Fall is here and with it incredible views. Incredible Fall colors. I am looking forward to views, as these, in the Rockies and incredible views in the East and elsewhere.

Took this the other morning while walking the terminal lot conducting lot check / inventory. I've been out of the seat for a few weeks healing an injury, and chomping at the bit to get back to it. My Physical Therapist has been on my case about "being too aggressive in doing the rehab exercises." She is having me rethink the Ft. McClellan "Charging Charlie-10, No Pain - No Gain" mantra. So, the last week or so has been kind of a downer (yep - ups and downs even when you're out of the driver seat!). Then... this...

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
