I took this photo in Iqaluit, Nunavut.
As I stared in wonderment at this stack of rocks precariously balanced, I saw an analogy of my life.
Although I’m not quite ready to reveal my whole life with you yet- we’re only on our second blog date after all, I’ll tell you what I see.
I see a good strong foundation – and a strong belief that I can build something awesome.
The bottom rocks at the bottom are my foundation – I put the strongest, most stable ones at the bottom to hold up the smaller ones – like a parent,
The bottom ones are my Taurus rocks.
Each rock I place on the foundation is a mini success in itself. Each rock is a little knowledge gained, Each rock is a memory.
Some rocks are a little weathered and scarred, but as a whole, the tower is a thing of beauty, even with the blemishes, like life itself.
I’m a little bit afraid to add another rock, but I do. I’m excited to add a new rock and proud when I do.
I’m halfway up – its holding up, but wait ! I have a really big rock to add, This was not expected. This changes things ! Do I stop now? Do I give up?
I close my eyes and add another rock.
My rock skyscraper seems to have gained some strength now – with this new foundation.
Maybe you see a similar analogy, or maybe something different. We each have our own towers to build.
These rocks are not going anywhere soon. Even if the tower was to fall over with time, the rocks could be used to build something else.
I hope to continue to share some of my photos, and my insights with you, Perhaps it will bring you inspiration, perhaps visual appeal. That would make me happy.
