Change in Direction

 
Do you ever find yourself traveling down the road
in your ordinary way and suddenly change direction?
Recently that is actually what I did.
Driving down the road, pulling off the freeway, instead of turning left
I turned right and headed back out of town.
It was a foggy day, a day that intrigued me.
I stopped along the way and watched the fields engulfed in fog.
It was a quiet day. The moment just grabbed me and said, take notice.
A tree was there to enchant me, standing as a sentinel in the morning light.
The grey day took on it's own beauty and I sat in JOY.
I surrendered to the PEACE.

I love the photo!

That's beautiful. Sometimes the road less traveled (or unexpectedly so) is exactly the one you are supposed to be on.

Marilyn, I love how you live life!

The best days are when I've taken a different road. I've literally gotten myself lost before, just going where my heart took me. I love your photo in the fog Marilyn!

I like routine, but sometimes it's good to do something out of the ordinary.
A lovely image of the tree and the mist.

Beautiful reminder that variety is the spice of life and patterns weave a new avenue for us to embrace.
Love Jeanne

Seriously, I don't do this enough. I need to take a moment, like you did after changing direction, to just sit and look. Good for you and really great photo.

OK, now I just love this! I am such a creature of habit, and I can't imagine I would ever have thought to go a different direction in the fog (of all things!), but what a terrific and bold idea. Thank you!

P.S. That photo would make a great book cover for someone. Maybe a moody mystery, or some poetry, or ... well, I could think of lots of things!
