When I find a boulder in my path, I can either turn back or grow around it. I am choosing to grow.
Boulder? What boulder?

Love it, love it, love it! I need to frame this.

Sometimes I need a reminder that even though things aren’t easy sometimes, it’s in my best interests to keep plugging. I’ve seen some things on our hikes this week that have really gotten me going.

How Hallmark card of you. Great pic.

Except Hallmark would add a dirty caption. And then charge you $5.

Very cool photo and love your outlook.

I am learning. And nature is an incredible teacher.

Dont know how you knew, but I needed this – we’ve been tryig to get this idea thru to our “I cant do math” 9 year old – Cant wait to print this out & show her, maybe a visual will help !

Watch this, with your 9 year old

Thanks ! I’ll show this to her tonight. ( I couldnt agree more, I home schooled my son with a small group of parents through high school because the public school was soooo bad)

The natural world has so many examples of “I CAN!”

Lordy I SO needed this exact input right now, today. Thanks

I think we all need reminders sometimes. Every time I look at that picture, I think “No one ever told that tree it was doing the impossible.”

I know this is outside and has nothing to do with your previous zoo photos of the adorable turtles, but I keep thinking there’s a baby turtle somewhere in there and I keep going back to the photo to find it. Very Where’s Waldo-esque. (Where is the little booger, gah!!)

I’ll post a where’s tortoise picture soon. I’ve been collecting camo pics of a baby bog turtle.

Ha! I did the same thing.
March 28, 2012 at 12:31 pm
I love this photo.

Next time, come with us so you can see it in person!

Thank you! I am so happy to have discovered your blog!

Nature always finds a way.
March 28, 2012 at 3:38 pm
It does. There were several spots where trees had overcome just incredible odds to survive. And they appeared to be thriving!

Me too. Hopefully the CT scan today will tell me how big that boulder is.
Hopefully it is more pebble than boulder. And will pass on its own!
March 28, 2012 at 3:27 pm
Amazing tree roots.
March 28, 2012 at 3:39 pm
They really are! They just go out and grab what they need.

Embrace the boulder!
