A Spring Journey
Today’s post is linked up to Mama Kat’s Writers’ Workshop. After reading and commenting on my post, stop by Mama Kat’s site and check out some other writers’ work!
I like to walk with my camera; the simple act of carrying a camera puts a new perspective on the most ordinary parts of my day. In a post last year, I took an exercise walk at dusk and documented simple encounters. This set of photos, taken on a quick walk around my school building during my prep period, took on a life of its own as I began to compose the photo essay.
Sometimes life has mud puddles and we just have to walk through them to get where we’re going.
Or potholes that may even break us for a while.
There are disappointments…
and sometimes we have to prune our hopes so that we can grow.
Life can be pregnant with possibilities…
or we can be almost past our prime.
The early bird probably does catch more worms…
but late bloomers have resilience in the face of showier neighbors.
There are those who display magnificent color for a short time…
and those who are in it for the long haul, despite the conditions.
“And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.”
