“The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.” ― Bertrand Russell
In today’s world we are constantly warned to be careful: of the things we eat, the places we go and the way we relate to our brave new world that appears to be shrinking daily and becoming a lot more intimidating.
The world which we were once taught as children to believe was round like a colorful beach ball to many folks is more like this roughly constructed yam tower challenging us everyday with new threats and concerns. We have to maintain a mental balance between what the world does and our personal reactions to it.
This week’s WP Weekly Photo Challenge allows me the opportunity to go off on a proverbial limb and visually present my take of life in modern times. It offers a mixture of encouragement,hope, humor and of course optimism for those folks struggling with the impossible odds and events that life throws their way on a daily basis.
We all might be stuck on the same boat in life but remember to remind yourself daily that not ocean-going vessel is The Titanic. The majority of such vessels offer their passengers gateways to exciting shores and wonderful scenery to boot if only they will let go of the life saver they cling to so desperately.
If a stick man can maintain its balance atop such a precarious tower how much better can we do it in the long run. The choice is yours. The world might not be your oyster but it is still an exciting place to live in.
