I was reading an AOL article today when I stumbled upon a set of pictures of the Northern lights, scientifically known as aurora borealis. I don't really have much of an official bucket list, but if I had one written in stone this would definitely be on it -- to see it in person I mean. There are so many pictures online, but I'm sure, as is the case with many other breathtaking sights, there is nothing like seeing it in person.
How amazing would it be the live somewhere where seeing the lights happened semi-often? I'm not positive on this, but I've heard that they don't really happen that often and it takes a special collection of circumstances for them to be visible; in addition the colors and whatnot are dependent upon various conditions. Regardless... I'm pretty sure I'd spend years on end living somewhere if I knew that one day I could see the lights.
Also, learned today that Scion is actually a word, not just a car company. The definition is 'a descendant of a notable family or one with a long lineage.' I see. Now the fact that they named a car company after that makes much more sense!
Also, I'm going to try to start posting more pictures with my blogs. Generally, I don't like to, simply because I'd prefer being able to paint the picture with my words than to just copy and paste an imagine. However, in some ways it does enhance the experience, and thus I think it might help not only the reader visualize better, but it is a way to better explain my thoughts. Right? Sure.
