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.

  1. When you go down deep enough into reality it’s starting to look like reality might be made of neither matter nor energy, but information. Perception may not be reality, but reality is perception.

    Also, do you have to drive more carefully when the roof of your car is a lake?

    The unknown is always a bit scary–taking that first step and then even those next few steps after that, can be daunting! When enough steps are taken, eventually it doesn’t seem so uncomfortable anymore….
