“It seems sometimes that we get so caught up in missing the past, or looking forward to the future, that we forget that this, right here and now, was once the days we longed for and will soon be the ones we miss.” John A. Ashley
The Daily Post’s Photo Challenge today – the Future. Share an image that represents the potential of things to come.
The Future to me? It often seems so bleak, what with things like global warming, mass shootings, drought and famine, floods and war. It’s positively biblical.
And it’s easy to be afraid.
The bumble bees are dying.
Hard to not be overwhelmed.
But sometimes it hits me – they were afraid of days like these back in days like those…
Time ticks on and I’m sure every generation was afraid of every future. So these pictures represent to me a continued celebration of a time and things that were, a reminder that people have always been afraid, no matter the generation, but that in those times, many great things have happened to move us forward.
“Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don’t let that be us.
Carpe Diem, people!
