“I can’t wait to get back to work so I can relax.”
— Everyone who has spent the Holidays with relatives!
We’re all getting back to our various routines after the hubbub of the Holidays, and I’m guessing with varying degrees of success. I know I’m looking at sizable list of things that all need to be finished — right now! But, after a couple weeks of “relaxing” (at least not “working”), I’m now out of practice regarding just how to make that happen and also, I’m simply having a hard time getting back to it. *sigh*
I think Step 1 should be to just relax about it; everything will get done… eventually. And while I’m letting my workload chill a bit, I want to take a minute to ask, “How were your Holidays?” I hope you had good ones, whether spent in the chaos of a large family gathering, or in quiet reflection with one — or a few — close, loved ones. I had one of those quiet holidays with Kathy, my other half, my muse, my rock.
One of the relaxing things we did was to go out to Mason Neck State Park for a photo safari. We visited one of my favorite fallen trees. And by “trees” I really mean two. One tree, made up of two major trunks growing very close and parallel from a single 3-foot stump, split and the trunks fell in opposite directions.
Things that make you go, "Hhhmmmm...".
We could learn something from this tree… I think you already know what it is.
I took many shots of the things happening to this tree; the peeling bark, the weathering of the wood, the lichens and fungus growing on it. In reflecting on this progression, I couldn’t help thinking of the ebb and flow in each of our lives. Every image I saw reflected this ebb and flow... metaphorically…
Thank You for visiting,
