Day Three Hundred Six, November 24, 2011

fall and float

What about this word destiny? Some believe it is already written, others are determined on rewriting it, some dismiss it completely and believe all is a haphazard series of coincidences… But aren’t we always changing the course of our destiny through actions we make and decisions we take? Isn’t blaming things on our destiny or our luck another way of abdicating from our responsibilities? How much of our lives are we directly responsible for and what part of them do we just allow ourselves to ‘go with the flow’ and just float inertly by. Going against the current, swimming upstream, creating a new path where no one has been before, isn’t that what humans where created for?

  1. I wish I had your eye! I would love to challenge myself like this. Maybe when my kid is older I will take on something like this….
    As for this post, I have nothing more to say, because you have said it all, and said it well.

  2. This is a lovely picture, thank you for posting it. I admire your commitment to doing a blog based on photo a day, do you always take the picture the same day that you do your post or are they from any time?
