Life on the road is not always exciting. In fact, I’ll be honest, sometimes on those long never ending stretches of outback highway, it can be downright boring. So when we see something out of the ordinary, it’s a jump to attention.
Like this car on a pole in a paddock.
Now that’s an unusual advertising billboard. Not what you’d expect to see in the middle of nowhere.
Or this giant prawn at a roadside stop. We must be getting closer to the sea.
Then again, what’s this tractor doing in the ocean? That’s one way to tow a boat I guess.
We’ve seen plenty of strange things on the beach. Like this sign below on Fraser Island.
Yes, it’s true. Planes really do land on this beach.
But then again stranger things have happened. It’s all about seeing life from a different perspective. Makes life interesting. And when things go back to the predictable we can use our imagination to see things in a different light. And have fun at the same time.
Who wants to settle for the ordinary? Don’t you love the idea that you can just pick up a lighthouse or a moving bus in a city street …. in a purely artistic sense of course.
My hubby seems to think so anyway. He’s always playing around with things.
Life really is all about perspective isn’t it. What we see isn’t necessarily what is real? Sometimes we even create our own reality. It’s all about perception and keeping an open mind to the possibilities around us. They’re endless and limited only by our imagination.
Here’s a plane landing on Fraser Island. On this beach it’s no more unusual than a car coming to a parked stop at a taxi rank. But on most beaches it would be downright unpredictable.
Life can often be that way. There’s so much we don’t understand. And sometimes I don’t even try. When things happen that seem coincidental or weird I’m learning to accept it and go with the flow. There’s little point in fighting it, especially when things seem out of our control. What’s important is how we react. Staying positive and moving forward.
Let’s accept the mysterious and the unusual and be open to all that the universe offers. There’s an exciting world of opportunities waiting for us if we do.
May we embrace life and live each day as an adventure. May we see the unusual as signs to live every minute of every day to its fullest.
After all, we’ll never have this day again.
Be happy, take the odd risk and keep enjoying the journey.
