In my neck of the woods things are a bit twisted.
There’s yarn bombing down the Main Street, along the railway fence, which acts as a canvas for knitted trains and assorted rural scenes.
Not far away, at Strathewen, street poles are knitted and twisted. Who would think something so ordinary could look so snug and appealing.
Less than fifteen minutes away in Kangaroo Ground lies a world of metal that defies the senses.
At Tread Sculptures Tim Read turns the twisted remains of scrap metal into a unique array of individual quirkiness. I’ve blogged about this place before but it seemed apt this week.
On the first weekend of every month his sculpture garden is open for those who want to wander and ponder a world of extraordinary twisted steel.
Look beyond the ordinary ‘stuff’ and there’s a deep connection with what he salvages and creates.
Like all artists we take the scraps and the good bits and somehow the end product always ends up unique and original.
It’s the same everywhere. There’s rarely a completely straight line in nature.
There’s so many twists and turns … in the physical and the non-physical. Sometimes the best thing to do is to let the wind blow and the wheels turn.
Even when everything feels like it’s standing still, life’s always changing. It’s curved and challenged, depending on how you look at it.
I guess how we perceive things is all in the eye of the beholder.
Even if the beholder is sightly bent and a bit twisted.
So laugh and the world will laugh with you.
Maybe the trick is simply to be ourselves, twisted and all, even when things aren’t on the straight and narrow.
Wherever the path leads us, along the twists and turns, through the highs and lows, the quirky and the individual, hold on and enjoy the view.
Life is inherently twisted but you know what they say “when something’s gone off course in your life, just yell ‘plot twist’ and move on.”
Everything eventually unravels and works itself out in good time.

Keep enjoying the journey.
