Winds of Change

f2.5, 1/800, iso200


We've had a lot of change happen in our lives, and are looking at the possibility of more big changes in the near future, so I thought a lot about how change makes me FEEL.

I am like the dandelion... I feel like I've grown, and changed a lot in my life. I'm not the young, naive yellow flower anymore... I think I have things pretty much figured out.

Then, the winds of change will blow, and I feel like I am scattered, and sometimes lost, and it's often scary. BUT if it weren't for the winds of change, I would never have a chance at new growth. I'd never have flown in the wind to so many different places, and met so many wonderful people, and grown into who I am today.

So... here's to change! Let the wind blow me wherever it will! :)
