Dam ...

Was flipping through my copy of Dwell this weekend and came across this amazing photo of a dam in southeastern France by photographer Celine Clanet. It's amazing that this giant infrastructure could manage to fit so neatly within nature. And it's almost like the cyclists and pedestrians on the path aren't aware of what's off to their right. It's kind of a metaphor for life too, right? We're all on some sort of path, trying to achieve some sort of goal. But if we don't stop and take a look around us sometimes, we can miss some amazing things.

Let's call this (w/out being too cheesy;) "take a look around Monday." Hope you had a great weekend.

Dam(n), amen to that! Metaphorically speaking, I can sometimes be that person riding their bike across the dam with their head down, not noticing/appreciating what's all around them. Thank you for reminding me to look up.
xo, t.

I'm thinking you completely forgot about this line:

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. "

Oh my, that is just breathtaking. I don't know if I would want to jog there, I would probably more likely walk to soak up the beauty of it all.
