Recently, here at the homestead, we redesigned the look of our family room, that is filled with glass towards the back woods. Where there once was a love seat with its back to a row of windows, a comfortable chair and ottoman are now situated. Resting in that seat now gives you a whole different vantage point to view our little world. In life these days, I enjoy routines; I tend to shun changes. I wonder why that is, because really repositioning yourself on that crowded 'merry-go-round of life' can be just the boost you need to reinvigorate yourself. While making coffee the other morning, I noticed shadows falling on the field near the frozen apple tree. Most of the time, shadows don't lie.

Interesting discussion, Birdman. Intellectually I believe in the values of change, or at least the ability to deal with change that is imposed, but in my actions I am probably an unchanging stick-in-the-mud. (Or, today, a stick-in-the-snow.)ReplyDelete
I'm not sure about shadows and truth-telling. But I am certain that a little change can be very healthy.ReplyDelete
I think the older we get more 'set in our ways' and more resistant to change. I like having routines!ReplyDelete
Routines provide comfort in a crazy world.ReplyDelete
Hmmm...is that tree as big as its shadow?ReplyDelete
Some change, for me, isn't too bad if I plan it and can prepare for it. The change I hate and resist is when other people or institutions instigate changes that impact my life.
It's nice to have a warm place to sit while watching what nature has to offer.ReplyDelete
Another wise observation about perspective and change, Birdman. . .and 'the shadow knows . . .'ReplyDelete
What a difference with yesterday colorful picture, but I like this one even more!ReplyDelete
Like your composition on this! I think I'm an oddball, I love change and in fact seek it out which drives those around me crazy!ReplyDelete
A glass in the family room over looking the woods , wonderful... unfortunately ours faces the busy road !
Thanks for the memories in 2010.
That is a wonderful view you have. So peaceful looking.ReplyDelete
Your reflection today was quite revealing. You changed your family room vantage point which has been that way for years. That's how it is in life; change the vantage point just slightly and voila! Change forces us to view others' vantage points as well; though it can be fearful. However; there in lies the growth!ReplyDelete
