119/365 Unexpected

Photobucket

I spotted this as I walked through a wooded area today. Someones idea of art--an old church steeple, plopped down in the midst of a clearing. I liked it, very much. This image will remind me that when I come upon unexpected things while moving towards my destination, to just roll with it! To make the best of life's unexpected surprises.

I'm still reading The Last Lecture and learning a great deal more about life and living. The lesson I gleaned today comes from a quote I took from the book.

Lesson: Through the whole ordeal, I don't think we ever said to each other: "This isn't fair." We just kept going. We recognized that there were things we could do that might help the outcome in positive ways... and we did them. Without saying it in words, our attitude was, "Let's saddle up and ride."
--Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

Wonderful colors and I really enjoy the slightly off center composition... breaking the rule of thirds always feels good, doesn't it?

The important it is to love that one make, here it feels the effects your photos and good work.

Fabulous find! It feels very peaceful to me.

The lesson quote is moving. Thank you for sharing that. I will have to re read that as I start the chemo next week.
