The View From Here?

 

 

  As Mattie and Helena took the last few steps to reach the peak of their climb and step onto 

 

the scenic overlook, they simultaneously stopped and drew in a sharp and deep breath. Their 

 

heads seemed to swivel together as they absorbed the stunning view spread out before them 

 

in all its Impressionistic glory.

 

  Helena slowly sank onto a natural rock shelf, completely mesmerized, her eyes wide and 

 

unblinking. She absently pulled her oversized scarf tightly around her arms as she 

 

contemplated the glory before her. As she did so she quietly sighed. This view seemed to 

 

speak to her soul, to touch her heart.

 

  Mattie suddenly exclaimed “Oh my gosh! The color of your scarf matches those mountain 

 

peaks!”

 

  The magic was lost...

Funny story. Reminds me of people who say "We're going camping!", meaning they will drive their RV to a parking lot next to some trees.
