Objects in Mirror



"Spend more time looking at life through the windshield, 
rather than the rear-view (or side;) mirror."

Good advice for sure.

Thank you for your kind words. This was a wonderful post for me ro read today. :)

Farm Girl said...

I try to stop doing that as I could end up in a ditch. That is a good reminder to keep my eyes forward. I love your road though.

Meg said...

But it's so pretty back there! Well, the picture. Maybe not life, haha. ;) Have a great weekend!

TexWisGirl said...

great job!

Lowell said...

Very cool shot and comment! The past is past and no longer matters and the future is uncertain...all we have is this very moment.

Keep running!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I so love the road going off in the distance. Looks like a good one to run...

Katie (Nature ID) said...

Yep, I so often find myself looking through the side mirror.. and then surprisingly find myself flat on my face when I wasn't looking where I was going.

Maple Lane said...

So very nice to "meet" you, Dawn. Love your photography.

The measuring spoons can be found on google - just type in "zinc mini-measuring spoons." Good Luck!

Samantha said...

That's a fabulous quote for heading into a new year..

Inger said...

Beautiful post.

Jack said...

I don't know, Dawn. Out where you live, the views in the side mirrors are pretty nice!

Leenie said...

Just remember to enjoy the beauty and ignore the bugs.

Debbie said...

Great thought and photo

Mike said...

Cool picture Dawn! Objects in mirror may appear larger than they are as well.

Randy said...

Funny I was thinking something similar today. Great shot.

Hilary said...

Very true but it doesn't hurt to reflect from time to time. Periodic glances, at least. :)

Navigating Northward said...

Your part of the Country is so pretty!

Ruby said...

great lines and a perfect mirror shot!

A nice reflective thought.

John McElveen said...

Janie said...

Great shot of the scenery through the side mirror, but I'm sure we'd all see more by looking straight ahead!

Val said...

A quote so beautiful and true!

Michael Manning said...

There is a tale of an Italian race car driver who once removed his rear-view mirror because he was all about looking ahead to the future. Loved this post, Dawn! :)
