#211 a curve on the road

211/365 a curve on the road, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

I was looking at pavements today – for the Daily Shoot, as usual.

Pavement comes in many flavors. Asphalt. Concrete. Bricks. Stones. Make a photo of some pavement you see today.

Got this shot of the curve just below our home. It made me think about life and the twists and turns it brings our way.

A big twist is just round the corner for me – my only daughter moving out to start her university studies. I am already feeling the notorious ’empty nest syndrome’ setting in.

Usually, I enjoy unpredictability and changes in everyday routine (or at least the avoidance of rut!), but this time, the change seems too overwhelming for me – even though, for the last two years, it’s been so clear that it’s about time for your young lady to start her own life. I have even started dreaming about a total change of lifestyle for myself – change of career, or change of country perhaps? Who knows what’s round that bend for me!

    I know how you feel, Sinikka, my son is about to move out and the change is overwhelming for me too. I keep thinking about how quickly the years have passed. I still have one son at home but I suppose I should prepare myself for the empty nest. Too quiet!

    Thank you for sharing these sentiments, Tania. That’s mothers’ life…

    This is a fab photo and I love the title and the way you’ve woven it into where you are. We never know what’s round the bend of course … but this start to the empty nest is not quite as fun as starting with an empty page I find.

    see you soon I hope 🙂 Koulu next week … cameras in hand!

      Thank you so much for all your comments, Lorna, and taking an interest! Certainly, Koulu next week. I could drive this time and pick you and Susanne up.
