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.

A Tree

"Except during the nine months before he draws his first breath, no man manages his affairs as well as a tree does." - George Bernard Shaw

Just a lone eucalyptus tree.  
Nothing special about it except for those who call it home, then it is pretty special.


  1. ...and home is where the heart is - nice photo and quotation

  2. Somebody must have brought these trees here. They are not a normal american tree I think. Otherwise you should also have koala's in it.

  3. Now I'm going to be thinking of this all day...

  4. i posted a lone tree today as well. one of my favorite subjects/things.

  5. These we all over the lake where I was born.

  6. I do believe that tree may be a long way from home - When you see trees like this, by their thousands, spreading over hills to the horizon there is only now place you can be. You should visit!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  7. Now, this is what call one purdy picture. No snow falling there. It is STILL falling here. Like your quotation.
