Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs

The test of an adventure is that when you’re in the middle of it, you say to yourself, “Oh, now I’ve got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home.” And the sign that something’s wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure.
Thornton Wilder

Signs

Finding that right balance between relaxing quietlyΒ at home and the joy of heading out in search of the next great adventure…

    1. Thanks, Nancy! I can’t walk down a street without taking at least one photo of a sign so it figures that the one prompt where I could use a few good ones comes after I’ve posted two signs in a row… Oh well, a little push to try something new is always good. πŸ™‚

  1. Now standing in the surf is my morning relaxation when weather permits. I love this photo and to me this is what life is all about.

  2. Oh I love that quote, it’s so perfect! I should tattoo that on my forehead so I’m constantly reminded of it >.<

  3. Lisa, I really like the stark contrast between the poem and the photograph. I can relate to what the poet penned. Patrick

      1. Yes, but we would have to get in the car and drive for about 20 minutes to get to the beach, instead of just walking 50 yards down the driveway. I do love our lake view, and I guess one can’t have everything, so I’m content. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, Perpetua. I spent some time last night looking for quote that felt right for the post and really liked this one. It’s nice to hear you like it too and yes, we spent a few hours on this beach just watching the water…

      1. Lisa, Love quotes. Do you mind fixing the typo. cold means could and thing is think. Thank you and have a great day. Perpetua.

  4. beautiful image. i have previously posted some signs too, and thought i would just sit out on this challenge. but this is a very unique take on it. thanks for sharing.
