Middle of the Road

I am still on my "slow-update" status at the moment. Have not been out shooting much lately. It is after all still the holiday season, plus I am having a rather interesting wedding assignment this weekend, which I look forward to very much. 

Thinking through all things around me at the moment, I felt like I am in the middle of the road. Surely I have walked far enough from the edge, but I have not quite reached the other side yet, and that seemed to be quite a bit of distance away. 

What is stopping me from crossing all the way?


  1. 3 stories to share with you.

    1. The student who showed a "conspicuous lack of success" on his report card? Who failed three times to enter the British Military Academy? Many of us would have given up after one rejection. But Winston Churchill stubbornly refused to accept defeat and became one of the greatest men of the 20th Century. Though he was rejected many times by the voters of Great Britain, he finally became the Prime Minister, standing between Hitler and the free world.

    2. The athlete who was so unpopular with the girls that he took a cooking class in case he never found a wife? The one who was cut from the Varsity team his sophomore year? The cut may have been the best thing that ever happened to him. Angry and embarrassed, he began to get up early each morning to practice with the Junior Varsity coach. Eventually he not only made the Varsity team, but became the most popular athlete in the world: Michael Jordan. (Sports Illustrated, Kids Edition, Aug/Sept, 1998)

    3. The 18-year-old actor who couldn’t land a part for two years and lived off macaroni? He finally got a part with a popular, long-running show called "Family Ties." I’m glad he didn’t give up. Can you imagine "Back to the Future" without Michael J. Fox?

    Winston Churchill's famous speech, "Never give up. Never give up. Never never never give up".
    Be brave, persevere and follow your heart. :)

    Happy New Year!

    1. Hello Calex,
      Thanks so much for the words of encouragement. They mean a lot to me. I shall remember the "Never Give up x infinity". Thanks for that. Cheers.

  2. Being new to reading your Blog, perhaps I have missed past stories that would give insight to this cryptic message....to me though,it seems like you are on top of the world, so no need to cross the road.....

    Have a happy new year !!!

    1. Hey dwight,
      Oh dear I am nowhere near so high, I am still crossing normal streets !!
      Happy New Year to you too.

  3. Why did the Robin cross the road? To take a picture of course!

  4. Just cross the road Robin. The other side is awesome.

  5. Trust me - You are already much, much closer than you give yourself credit for. Calex paraphrased Churchill very well: never, never, never give in. Especially when you ARE so close!

    Happy new year!
