Rock Walk

Life is where you find it. Like rocks strewn across Maine's rugged coast, it can at first look so simple, yet, get closer, and it's anything but. Some of us seem never happy. We are constantly on the move, seeking contentment just around the next bend in the road. Others seem so fixed. We find a point, take root and stay forever. Me? I'm rather like the latter. I'm like a good cow, roaming the fields by day but always finding the barn at dusk.

  1. I'm coming back later to get Elenka's perspective on this one. I believe the deep roots self-analysis.

  3. Moo to you. Lovely shot...and I enjoyed your commentary. It's nice to find someone who can reflect deeply on his/her person and still be lighthearted about it!

    Superb photo, also!

  4. Super photo and text to go with it. Are those smaller rocks sitting on a larger, flat shelf of rock? It certainly is a beautiful photo.

  6. I'm the same way and I like it. Oh and to answer your question on my blog, no gators (that I could see anyway) but I wouldn't go swimming there!

  9. I like variety but don't particularly like change so the old barn always looks good!

  10. There are so many things to discover around home... I like some detour and the occasional travel, but I am always happy to come back here!

  11. I LOVE this photo--want to paper a wall with it or make it my desktop. Love the stones and swirly textures. And to compare yourself to a cow--haha--priceless.

  15. I think I would have used something other than "cow imagery" but I did get the message. I feel that "home" is found with family whether that be a specific geographic location or a moving target.

    Nice photo too!
