Never look back

“Never look backwards or you’ll fall down the stairs.” ~ Rudyard Kipling

down staircase

We can’t change our past, we can only learn from it. There is nothing accomplished by replaying our mistakes or regrets. We can learn from our “could’ves” and “should’ves.” We’ve got to keep moving forward and up, or all that baggage will paralyze us.

Don’t let the past define you. and weigh you down. Use it, climb over it like a stepping stone.

Never look back.

I’m grateful for:

1. Handrails
2. Neighborhood sidewalks
3. Sturdy walking shoes
4. Elevators

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. I’m not sure if I should keep looking at that photo! It’s making me dizzy 🙂 Great shot.
    Handrails are a good thing; now I just need to remind my goofy, silly little guy to use them instead of barreling down the stairs without regard to the bottom.
