Answer the questions if you like or just take a moment to ponder,but whatever you do enjoy SCENIC SUNDAY

scenicsundaylogo Once again we are back at CHESTNUT RIDGE METRO PARK near Lancaster,Ohio enjoying the sunny day and scenery. Yes there are some shadows here, actually a lot of shadows so:

uturns  Have you staid on the straight and narrow path in life or have you had to make a U turn? Were you able to cross life’s bridges when you came to them?

Is life a bowl of berries where you have been able to channel your energies? Maybe you feel like you are caught in a vise and just wonder Y.

Do you sometimes run when maybe you should walk? Could it be you have lost your purpose in life? Maybe, you can’t see the forest for the trees when you really just want to stand alone.

Someone told me, “God doesn’t make junk .”

Amen, Joe... Great post!!!! Yes--enjoy life and keep on crossing those bridges into the unknown!!!!! And sometimes, we have to forget the bridge and rock-hop across that water---or even get our feet wet....

I have to agree with Betsy, this is such a great post and wonderful shadow shots! I rather needed to read your words today -- one of those days that do come now and then. Thanks for the reminder!

Have a great weekend!

Q. Have you staid on the straight and narrow path in life or have you had to make a U turn?
A. Straight and narrow??? BWAAAhahahahahaha! U turn? More like switchbacks!

Q. Were you able to cross life’s bridges when you came to them?
A. Not until the boards were falling from under my feet.

Q. Is life a bowl of berries where you have been able to channel your energies? Maybe you feel like you are caught in a vise and just wonder Y.
A. My energies seem to be spiraling inward. No vise, and not wondering why. Just sittin' in the bowl of berries, waitin' for the cream like Melancholy Pooh's waitin' for the hunny.

Q. Do you sometimes run when maybe you should walk?
A. Absolutely.

Great photos and great quotes on your blog

JOE TODD said...

June, I forgot all about switchbacks but today I went in circles does that count? LOL. Betsy I'll bet you have been in a lot of snow ball fights in your life and came out a winner. Sylvia as my doctor told me, "you are living on the green side of the turf." So I'll just count my blessings and throw more snow balls. Thanks for all the comments

great post. very interesting!!

Stine in Ontario said...

Chestnut Metro Park looks like a delightful place!

Carolyn Ford said...

I am particularly fond of the bridge and pathway! Those are very nicely composed and inviting!

Ralph said...

Your paths seem narrow, indeed. Should these not be so, we could be sidetracked from the direction we ought to be traveling. We can go the right way and still not miss any of the important sights and beauty that surrounds us. A lovely sentiment and pictures of beauty that amaze!

Ann said...

The last collage photo, top right photo, waht are those columns?

Soon you will have snow?

JOE TODD said...

Ann, I don't know for sure what the cement columns were for. I'm thinking a platform or foundation for a tower. At any rate they no longer have a purpose in life. Ralph, those times in life I was sidetracked turned out to be the "best of learning experiences" and makes my life today that much more richer

Lovely post!

I think sometimes that I'm caught right in the middle with any of those questions. I try my best, but things don't always work out the wy I planned. sometimes it's my fault, and sometimes it's just circumstances. Great post. The questions did make me think, and I loved the pictures, especially the bridge.
