If you look at these twisted rocks the right way, you might see the shape of two alligators kissing. Or not. It all depends on the shape of your imagination.

Sprung a Leak

Sprung a LeakThere’s a well-known story of the cracked pot which feels bad for losing water all along the path back from the river where it was filled. But it turns out that, unbeknownst to the flawed pot, it has been watering wildflowers all along the way.

What do you nurture without ever really trying to?

Wrecked

WreckedA rusted-out wreck. Pollution. An eye sore. But over the years this old hulk may very well have become a fox’s den, a hollow for a bee hive, a rabbit’s safe haven.

Has something that someone else has discarded been re-born as something useful to you?

Old Ways

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A telephone booth may well be the most recent obsolete item of our modern age. You don’t have be all that old to remember the fad of seeing how many people you could stuff in a phone booth, let alone identifying with Clark Kent’s iconic changing station or thriller movies in which the bad guy makes contact via pay phone. In an age where smart phones are the norm, there’s not much point to phone booths taking up room on the sidewalk. But it can be hard to see them go.

What nostalgic, unnecessary thing do you love?

After the Fire

After The FireIn 1988 hundreds of thousands of acres of Yellowstone National Park were burned in massive wildfires. The devastation was immense, but the lodgepole pines that make up most of the park’s forest depend on fire to release their seeds. When the rains returned, up to a million seeds per acre began to grow.

What has been the rain that allowed new life to return for you after a time of loss?
