Earthly Treasures….this piece is a place on various ideas.  The title and the imagery is inspired by a phrase I found in a Colorado magazine that said “Another kind of rich…”  It was an ad for something, but that phrase stayed in my mind and had me thinking about the natural richness we have here in Colorado.  Christian culture says to not store up earthly treasures, but heavenly treasures instead.  I believe that’s true, but I also love the idea of turning the phrase to remind us to be thankful for the earthly treasures we have, like mountains that take our breath away.   Perhaps rather than pining after earthly treasures and seeking after them, we simply are grateful for the ones that are freely given.
