Sometimes we're on the other side of the fence. We are looking in and over, straining to get a view of what seems to be a mystery. Many times the fence is too high, the slats too close together, the hole just a little too small to get a clear picture. Yet we keep on looking for a little snippet of the unknown.
Isn't life that way sometimes? We keep looking on to the next thing, trying to solve the mystery, while forgetting about what we are doing in the here and now. I myself, have been just that person standing on my tippie toes waiting for the magical to appear.
It has been a battle to live in the now. My nature normally doesn't allow it, as I have always lived lifetimes ahead of what I was ready for. Although, I have been trying :)
The pictures above were taken at Seaworld on our recent trip to Florida. All of these beauties were behind a fence of some kind.
Funny how things pan out on the other side...this time, they were beautiful.
