Shaped over time
I took this snap on the way home from school, I have decided to keep the camera in the car.
This tree has been bent by the wind and the elements it's probably pretty old. It has been moulded by it's position. If it was in a different setting it would look different.
The experiences of life shape us.
I was listening to a song the other day by Foy Vance "When you took your chances, It was like you placed a bet. And sometimes this is the reward you can get."
Life is unpredictable, circumstances shape us, we don't always ask for them but they come and mould us. Some days you just don't know which way the dice are going to roll.
Today life could be good, tomorrow bad who knows. That can either be exciting or frightening.
Helen Keller said "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing" she probably wrote that on a good day.
