Lacking, as I do (see yesterday’s post!) any real sense of direction, physically or otherwise, in my life’s journey, I kind of live it in the middle of the intersection. You know, when the traffic slows down and the smog clears, it’s kind of exciting and always interesting here at the crossroads.
There are not only all of the events and incidents that brought me to the place where I stand at any given moment, but so much more that enriches life in the intersection. All of the peripheral things that I didn’t do—yet, anyway—lie somewhere nearby, should I change course or take notice and choose to move accordingly. There are all of the other people who come and go up and down the same roads and walkways, and there are all of those who cross my path at any given intersection, and all of their lives and adventures are influences on my own travel, even on my moments of standing absolutely still there.
And then I move on, often without any greater sense of direction than before, but also, often enough, with an optimistic sense that I will soon find myself having yet another unexpected, very unplanned trip through yet another unknown intersection.
Living in the middle of the intersection…fantastic way of putting it. So true, so exciting to be in the middle of nowhere and everywhere at the same time.
This, of course, is a large part of why I’m perpetually perplexed as to my current location and intended directions from it! 😀
Wonderful image and story! I can relate.
I’m discovering, over time, that this particular intersection is very highly populated! 😉
That’s a great perspective and one I should adopt! Thank you!!
Welcome to the intersection. There’s a lot of good company here, from what I’ve seen! 😀
I love your imagery and living life in the middle of the intersection, Kathryn…great word play and some unknown intersections can be quite exciting! 🙂 xo
Don’t we know it!!! 😀
