Weekly Photo Challenge: Resilient

December 30, 2016

dsc_0041-001These barn doors were used as back drops for a photo shoot.  I have limited experience using a tripod. We had our share of laughter, as I ran to pose and act natural. So funny!  We often pass this beautiful barn, and all of the time whiz by. My photograph does not give justice to the beauty of the wood. The challenge for this week at the Daily Post is Resilient. It makes me think of this old barn, that Mr. G, thinks was used for milking cows. I am sure it has weathered many storms, and still it stands, with untold stories, that I will never know about. When I ponder on the word resilient, it makes me think about butterflies…

I think of Mr. G, who blew out his knee in the early eighties and then developed an infection in it years later. He was told that it would be best to remove his leg. He resisted that consideration and sought out alternative options.

We are not serious hikers, but when we do, we enjoy the experience, despite, getting out of breath, getting lost a few times and running out of water. People, animals, mammals and insects are resilient. We can bounce back from hardship, sorrow and loss. I must add that as human beings we have a responsibility to protect those that have no voice…  We are meant to overcome and maybe we don’t hear about it often enough, about those that persevere despite insurmountable circumstances.

    Sometimes I think we’re more resilient than we can imagine — and that our lack of imagination causes us to get in our own way. Kudos to you and Mr. G for pressing on, despite the obstacles!

    “I must add that as human beings we have a responsibility to protect those that have no voice” Hell yes!
