Uncharted Journey in Blue

Uncharted Journey in Blue Copyright

I was reading a post that Kathy wrote today. To, me, her post had me thinking ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, new words for old ‘argument’, free will v.s. destiny. Why must we believe that we control everything? Who places the doors in front of us? Who provides the opportunities to notice the doors placed there as part of the plan, while we exercise our free will, to choose the right path or to be redirected later? Is one way, somehow worse than another? If I do not see what is next, I will get run over by the truck coming up the road. If I focus on a very limited description or perception of now, I will focus so hard on only the pretty flower at the edge of the road and not notice the truck coming, that to me is also NOW, even if it is future, and be dead. Are our journeys uncharted?

About Elisa

I love reading, writing, poetry, photography and cooking and and and...!!! "It gives me strength, almost unbelievable strength, to know that you are there. I covet your eyes, your ears, the collapsible space between us. How blessed are we to have each other? I am alive and you are alive and so we must fill the air with our words." - Dave Eggers

    Elisa, you got this ponderance out of reading my blog? Wondering where free will popped in. But why should I wonder. Ha ha. A friend called recently, maybe within the last week or so, and said she wanted my opinion on free will. I said, sure, let’s talk, call back Sunday or Tuesday. She never called. Free will? I couldn’t even begin to imagine how I would answer her, except maybe to say I do believe in free will on certain levels of perception. On the more immediate human levels, yes, free will can/does exist. On the more extensive levels of perception, not a chance.

      Yes, while at the same time working with file images and these doors and thinking what is behind the next door? Which one will I choose? And then, a standard admonishment–when one door closes another one opens, or something to that effect. Maybe not admonishment, perhaps supportive. ha

      • Kathy says:

        How we admonish, how we support. I ponder free will, too. Part of me would like to quit blogging forever and spend every single minute focused toward my deepest desire. But who wants that? Who turns toward the computer and starts typing? Who? Why does that one open the door? P.S. I love your door. Forgot to tell you that in the flurry of words. It is an awesome door.

      • Elisa's Spot says:

        Thank you, I wanted you to like the door šŸ˜€
        I’m calling any of the ones that I alter, Photographic Art. I think I wish that I had the skill and the ability to do that with a paint brush, however, I rather like very much all of the gifts that I have been granted thus far in life šŸ™‚ oh, yes and is the blue too much on the background of elisa’s spot? I like it and, then I don’t.

      • Kathy says:

        Oh my gosh, I can’t deal with us liking and not. I am driving myself crazy! How do we exist between the opposites? I like the blue. That’s it. Amen. Nothing more to say. lol!
