Waiting Game

Life's a waiting game, isn't it? Like this section of the dock near the Casco Bay Lines Terminal, that awaits the schooners Bagheera and Wendameen return this summer, we all seem to be reaching for something not quite within our grasp. Often to the young, they seem large and way too unattainable. Sometimes, they do not even register on the radar screen of life. Whereas, another of the fine benefits of the experience of age, allows us to set realistic goals, accessible or not, in a less pressure filled time. Some are shareable with friends and associates, while others we hold closer to the heart. Today, why not ask yourself, what are your dreams? What do you hope comes your way soon?

  2. Years ago my dream was to leave the city and live on a farm. I made that happen and it is a much crazier adventure than I could have imagined.

  6. Today I dream about winning the barrier of language. Power to talk
    fluently and be understood!

    Hugs and happy weekend

  12. That's quite a lovely marine picture. I guess you have a good supply of subject matter. You don't have to dream about your future, though. It's enough for me to live day to day, pursue my interests and passions as opportunities are presented and to play the hand of cards I am dealt to the best of my ability.

  15. I love the colors. Nature has the best palette. I have to agree with Bob. I am just happy for everyday. Every single one good or bad always has something to offer.Ok and maybe someday along the way a Mini Cooper would be really cool! Have a great weekend.
