From my point of view, things (in the USA) are rather topsy turvy. That’s what I like about the angle of this photo – the only viewpoint from which I could capture the length of the huge pole with a large metal spike in its side.
As the cool waters of Crescent Creek rushed underneath this small bridge, a metal ladder caught my eye.
Dyslexics like me, undiagnosed and self-taught, see through the upside down and backward of things to find truth.
To land upon, and find balance atop this snag took effort. Wings spread wide with feathers angled into the breeze, head thrust downward, while claws grip tight. This immature Bald Eagle reminds me that the USA is yet a young nation. From my point of view, we are teetering, learning, yet I have faith that we will survive our current president and his administration to thrive and rebuild alliances.
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” Harriet Beecher Stowe
Yes, I’m an optimist – my glass is almost always half-full. This point of view keeps me going forward, looking in all directions for possibilities and solutions. “No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.” Helen Keller
