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.

Mushrooms 14

I wish the water drop had not been on the camera for this shot.  
Notice the tiny mushroom poking up at the 8 o'clock point of the big mushroom.

Pulling back a ways you can see many more of those tiny fragile looking mushrooms.  Makes me wonder the force they must have to push up through all the heavy leaf litter.  
Maybe they aren't so fragile after all.


  1. Growing plants break rocks and concrete. Yes the power of live.

  2. Those green leaves popping up are outsiders between all the brown and grey.

  3. you're right. probably a lesson in perseverance.

  4. I agree, I don't think they are very fragile at all.

  5. You take such great shots of the forest floor, John! You must go home with wet knees after every photo shoot.

  6. I love the rich colors in the first shot.
