Coming back from the expedition, we crossed the six-acre pasture at the back of the FMA property. As I walked, I appreciated the view of the grassy field, the woods in the distance, and the mountains in the background. I snapped a picture as I walked, because I thought it was pretty. I didn’t think much about it until later.

     When I was looking at the picture a few days later, I saw it differently.
     The field of grass came to represent opportunity. The opportunity to imagine and create goals at a young age is endless. Anything is possible.

     The woods in the distance came to represent the choices I make to find the path to my goals. The path is there, but I have to find it.
     The mountains represented the struggles and hardships on the path to my goal. I will have to climb over many obstacles on the way to achieving what I want.
     A grassy field, woods in the distance, and mountains on the horizon – a pretty picture became, for me, a realization about my future.
