I grew up in Nevada, the desert. I was never too impressed with the desert views, but I never really new anything different. I was, and still am, captivated by gorgeous bodies of water, from streams to lakes and rivers to oceans. As well, I love the views of stunning mountain ranges. I live near the Rocky Mountains and I very much enjoy seeing them everyday.
I recall a moment when I was younger, driving to Lake Tahoe with a friend. I remember that he could not stop complimenting the desert landscape. He was impressed by the sand dunes, dust devils, dry air and the various desert plants. I didn't get it, but he loved it. When we came up to the Lake, however, he was fairly quiet. You could tell he was not impressed with the water as he was with desert landscape.
I began to understand more and more that we all see beauty differently. This extends beyond just the physical. We all feel emotions differently, react to situations differently, taste food differently and enjoy day to day life differently. We are all different and I believe we should respect each other's differences as long as we are not harming anyone.
