This week the Lens-Artists community invites you to share images of what over the hill means to you. Maybe you enjoy watching ant colonies. Is mountaineering in your future? Does “over the hill and faraway” resonate with you? Is there a storm brewing, a sun rising, a challenge you don’t want to face? That age thing. The options are endless. I hope you will have fun creating something that represents over the hill for you. I look forward to seeing your perspective.Donna of Wind Kisses
This week, we are very pleased to welcome Donna of Wind Kisses as our guest host. At a time when she is reaching an age milestone, she is wondering what’s up ahead. So, she asks, What does “over the hill” mean to you?
Some people think they are over the hill when they reach a certain age. They imagine that death is just around the corner or over the next hill. But that’s not the way I want to think about it.
Just remember, once you’re over the hill you begin to pick up speed.
I think there’s more to living than counting our years on earth. No matter how old you are, it’s time to look ahead, over the next hill.
It’s time to explore new places and see new vistas, like this wonderful view at the top of Whistler mountain.
It’s time to surprise myself and see what I’m capable of… like climbing these stairs leading to the Boboli Gardens…
Hopefully, my body and spirit will cooperate!
It’s time to wrestle with my fears and overcome them.
(And yes….I did cross this suspension bridge near the top of Whistler Mountain…and it felt wonderful…afterwards! 😊 )
