In case you didn't read my last post (naughty you!) it included a picture that I shot of an abandoned vessel that was stuck on dry land, atop coral and sand. Unfortunately for the skipper and crew, the boat was definitely going nowhere soon. But, what really caught my attention was the name: Second Chance.
While snapping that photo, I contemplated whether the not too seafaring craft had already surpassed its second chance, or was that a future voyage? I realized then more than ever that people are like boats; each headed on their own particular voyages - some moving forward, while others are stock-still.
Thinking further, I discerned that I must undoubtedly be into messages from boats these days; they seem to be sailing in to subliminally share their intuitive wisdom.
Just the other day and quite by accident, I happened down a residential, neat and tidy side street (yes - street) and saw:
"If nothing changes, then, nothing changes."
Between Second Chance, - No Change - and the saying, "If nothing changes, then, nothing changes," wouldn't you agree that the message that is being steered towards me is: I now have a second chance for change?
But, change what?
I was about to publish this post, when I received a new email.
