oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

See how she flies!

This is the picture that sparked my photo blog creativity once again - albeit almost 3 weeks after I took it. What I see is Amanda swinging wildly out over the body of water that she calls Swan Lake. What I think is that will never be me. What I wonder is when did I get too scared to fly?


I don’t believe for one moment

that youth is wasted on the young.

  1. It is good to be reminded of how fearless we used to be when we were young. I mentioned having more adventures as my New Year’s resolution, and I have to wonder why/when I lost that fearlessness. EVERY day used to be a new adventure, even if I didn’t leave my backyard. Little things, like digging in the dirt and finding an Indian head penny, or being dive bombed by a bluejay who had a nest nearby, used to spawn hours of adventures. Hmmm, thanks for the reminder to stay young.

    • I think about that quite often – how I would do so many more things when I was younger. Even if I knew I might get hurt. I guess experience taught me to be more careful and not take the risk of getting hurt, but I don’t think that’s always a good thing. I wish I was more daring.
