I suppose life is a mixture of ups and downs. It’s hard to say. One minute we’re smiling, the next there’s challenges all around.
Just wanting to show you these two photos this afternoon.
Perhaps you want to ponder. Are you feeling up or down lately?
I live in the middle of the woods in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Next to Lake Superior's cold shores. I love to blog.

Middling ? LOL
Mostly up with occasional downs.
Both! Trying to keep more to the up but it depends on the day!
On the steady… ebb and flow.
Love the photos…
I like ‘middling’ 🙂
I look up and the the broken branch being supported by the other branches – and down, a whole carpet of nourishment for the next year’s growth. – And i’m with Jeff here 🙂
For me the photos kind of represented: beauty above, beauty down below. At least on one level…
Gee, I tend to be a look up sort of person … until I trip over my feet! Good reminder for us to look on the positive side of things, but watch where we’re walking.
It reminds me of a program that my granddaughter watches – Peanut and Yoyo, two clowns who teach about opposites. “Step right up – or down,” they say. Their little show for little souls reveals the dichotomous nature of existence on this planet. Though I’ll save that lesson for later. For now, I’ll just sing the song and enjoy opposites at face value.
(Do you find it a sad or joyful that I happen upon inspiration in a children’s show? I find joy in it, so currently, I’m up.) XOXO
That is such a sweet story, Stacy–I love it! Sorry I didn’t respond sooner, but we’ve been downstate to pick up Mom and bring her back. I remember watching children’s shows when the kids were small and loving some of the lessons imparted so much!
No, worries! There is no rule on when/if a blogger responds. Enjoy your mom’s visit! XOXO
I would like to write a blog about her being here, but need a few spare minutes to fit it in. Thanks for the well-wishes.
Write later! (Do you know how many posts remain in my head until the time is right/write?) 😉
Life really is a mixture of ups and downs. ❤
It is indeed, LaDonna!
Here, there and everywhere!
Indeed, that is so true!
Kathy, those pictures are gorgeous! Can’t wait until our leaves start turning… Been both up and down lately, like Jeff says, ebb and flow…
Barbara, that seems to be the way of life. Yet I think sometimes our minds think it should be “up” all the time. I know mine sometimes thinks that. And thank you about the pics. ❤
The more I look up and around, the less down I feel…. ;-0 xo
Indeed so! In response to your comment I am singing, “Up, up and away, my beautiful, my beautiful balloon…” *grin*
