Weekly Photo Challenge: A Call To Adventure

This week’s photo challenge asks us to visualize adventure.  Well, for me, an adventure can start with a kiss…

The Kiss

Cupid and Venus, Dreihaus Museum, Chicago, IL

Or a quest.

Knight

Knight in Shining Armor, MFA Boston

It’s a call to take action.  To leave the comforts of home and go out into the world.  It doesn’t matter how you travel.

Chevy

Chevy Relic, Grand Rapids, MI

Or, how fast you go.

Parachutist

Parachute Drop, Thunder Over Michigan Air Show, Willow Run, MI

The important thing is to acknowledge our fears.  Real or imagined.  And not let them stop us.

The Dragon

In acting, we summon our courage…

And stand tall against a foe.   We may travel alone.  Or, with a faithful companion.

Folk Art, MFA, Boston

The results can be surprising.  They might bring us happiness or sadness.  Or maybe a bit of both.  But still, despite everything, we know with all certainty that we rose to the challenge …

And it changed us forever.

What does adventure mean to you?  What is your next adventure?  Mine is to write my second novel, which I have been researching for the past few months.  Very soon, I will start the writing phase, which fills me with great excitement and some fear.  But, here I go!   Wish me buona fortuna!  I wish the same for you on your next adventure.

    • Thanks, Sally! Street art is fascinating. In Chicago the dragon and other drawings are in an underpass near a park. They’ve been there for months and I hope they stay for a long time. It does pull you in to a magical world.
