reading the splinters
of my unfolding journey—
countless miles to go

  1. Oh the stories those (once animated) wheels could tell. Your photograph is an excellent choice. Happy Wednesday!

  2. It does feel like that at times doesn’t it..particularly midday on a Wednesday – neither here nor there but decidedly uncomfortable

  3. Ah yes we will make mistakes. Yet our tomorrows offer us hope and respite

    Much love…

  4. Splinters of an unfolding journey – wow. I love that!

  5. beautifully expressed just as Sherry says….i think reading is important, next part will be smoother….

  6. I always feel such awe and sadness at seeing the past tell its story such as this. It is as though it tells us “This is where you have come from”. What a touching shot this is.

  7. I too love that photo! It makes me think of prairies and the 1800s and fields and horses and ladies in gowns and gents with pointed moustaches…lovely imagery!!!

  8. One is led to seek and observe the realities of life all the time. The journey is exhaustive!


  9. Tough hot and grim…we need to be reminded…we are too soft now !

  10. Applying this to my own journey–though I see the wagon–I hope to age a long enough to splinter before I am done–and without feeling splinters in me! Neat!

  11. Splinters as a metaphor for life’s trials is brilliant!
