The Journey

a bend in the road

Today was a good day for a drive through the country.  Snow melting. Sun shining.  Birds singing.  A feast for the eyes and soul.   

I chose my driver, my dear hubby who endures these little treks often, and naturally my camera wanted to go, too.  My photo “topic” today was roads. This winding road above was my favorite of the batch.

letting go

I had not set out to take photos of barns, but this one called to me.  She is falling apart, covered in vines, out in the middle of a field.  The old tree that used to give shade to the farm hands is all but gone, too.   

This kind of stuff inspires me, makes me think of where life takes us, and what we have to let go of along the way.  What have we learned?  How has it all changed us?  That’s just how my mind works.  

Today? I learned that what I may set out to do, thinking “I” know best, is not always (a.k.a. seldom) how it will go.  And this is okay.  Because it’s all about the journey and being open to those little lessons along the way.

 

Beautiful landscape

Yellow flowers

As we rode along in the car with my son and his wife, we rounded a corner and this caught my attention.  Not often do I ask that we stop so I can get a photograph, but I could not pass this by.  

I’ve no idea what the yellow flowers are called, but this field of young trees (planted in rows) was filled with this brilliant yellow bloom.  To me, this scene is an example of a perfect spring day.

A blogging note…
Thanks to Cathy at Grandma’s Little Corner for pointing out an issue I was having here with the comments.  Turns out that I placed a check mark in a box that only allowed comments from Goggle+ users.   (It always helps to really read directions, *cough *cough.)    
It’s all fixed now.  Sorry for the inconvenience!
