Canoe

It's time to push off. A new adventure awaits today. Set sail. Renew. Refresh. Rekindle. Dreams are out there for the taking. Throw your ol' lasso around one of those distant stars and take a ride. Make a plan. Keep to the plan. Plan for the unexpected. Forge ahead. Seek your path. Try that seldom tread upon trail through the thicket. Don't be afraid to get beat up a bit. In the long run, it might be worth more than you might imagine. You never know what you might discover about the world around you and yourself. So throw those 'life templates' away. Pack your essentials and head up river. Your next adventure is just a push away. Push off!

  5. Yeah right. I'm just pushing off to go mow the lawn. Not much excitement here. Have a good adventure, and post pictures.

  11. I love the connections between photo & message in your last 2 posts. Let me see: shall I throw my lasso around a star or try that seldom tread upon trail? No, I think I'll hoist my 'ol Keowee on my car & tool on up to the lake...it's been several (or more) years since I've done that...Thanks your inspiration, Birdman.

  12. Wow - to use another metaphor, be sure your parachute is properly packed before you leap. Like the picture - it plays tricks with my eyes about whether it is horizontal or vertical.

  13. How true. I've been taking some side trips through Serbia; always something new. I even have a recent canoe photo quite like yours. Great minds... ;<)
