First thoughts on Oklahoma

Can't see the end.
The feeling I get when I look at the horizon of green fields spotted scarcely with bushy trees is new.

It's not a sad feeling.
At first I thought it was a somewhat intimidating feeling- like the security of the mountains that have always surrounded me is gone.

But then I quickly realize its not a bad feeling, it's just a new feeling.
A little exciting and a little overwhelming.
So much earth I haven't ever seen, so many people and places I've never known.

It's a humbling feeling.
And I like it- mostly.
I think I'll be ok here.

The familiar daily routine I've come to appreciate and relish will be gone- at least temporarily- until I adopt one here.

Yeah... I'll definitely be ok here.
