The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Autumn Nearing it's End

"Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."  -  George Eliot 


  1. Those photos are both very beautiful.

  2. I love that George Eliot quote. Autumn is a glorious time of year.

  3. lovely images John and like George, if I could, I'd probably do the same as he suggests

  4. That first image is stunning!

  5. Nice quote though it wouldn't work in practice; no autumn any where when it's midsummer or midwinter here.

  6. That is one crazy oak gall. Looks like lots of critters drilled their way out!
