Chances Are

It just seems your on my way.
If you are an ant and this is your hill.
Incredible Ant Facts here.

Did you know ants move an estimated 50 tons 
of soil per year in one square mile?

Today's title actually arrived from this song playing now.
  It just really hit home for me. I hope you enjoy it as well.

In the video the moments are taken from the wonderful movie "Hope Floats) and if you haven't seen it you should.

Thoughts on taking pictures
and living life, 
one day at a time.

"The goal is not to change your subjects,
but for the subject to change the photographer."

And most importantly, how life can change the photographer.

It's good to be flexible
 (and have a job willing to twist with your schedule as well)

My view out the window at about 5:24 am
I'm kind of on a 4 day vacation
staying with three of my darling munchkins
and their adorable dog, Emmie.
and one fish 
(Karina swears needs its water changed now!)

Then my view a little later

It promises to be a beautiful day.
I always love this time of day when all you hear is the sound of birds
and nature.
Everyone still sleeping.
The world is just nature before your eyes.
Not even one random fisherman.

Coffee for one
with a pup.

Later this day-

See the flag? We were sure the wind was going to blow it away on Sunday!

Minnesota where the temperature isn't anywhere near 111.

But it can be known as the WINDY CITY!

Reach for the sky.

Hold on to your hats!

As are most of us right now I'm sure,
 I'll be taking a real vacation at the end of this month.
New places and sites to discover!

I have no idea who anyone in this picture is but the lady in glasses caught me!
I just love cities and people and tasty treats along the avenue!

Life is just what we make it.

I hope you are carving some special moments in your life as well.

From Hope Floats,
"So when you find yourself at the beginning
Just give hope a chance to float up.
And it will, Hope Floats up."


"They say that beginnings are scary
endings are usually sad,
but it's the middle that counts the most."
