The Hard Road to Completion

The photo on the left looks like a sunrise on a lake. The lake seems to be having its first ice webs reaching across the reflection of the trees. I love the photo for what it is– possibility. But it’s not a lake. It’s the roof of my car with the first frost on it. Perception is not reality, but your perception is your reality. Build it carefully.

Our dreams are the beginning of our future. The road between is what we build our lives on.

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us.   ~  Alexander Graham Bell
