I was just looking at my photo at the top of my blog. I took this near where I live. My wife and I take walks there all the time. For some reason the well worn line - Up the creek without a paddle- came to mind.
Now I know this is used to indicate a problem. But if you're already up the creek, why do you need a paddle? Just turn around and float back down! I guess I like to think positive. Next time I may ramble about the glass half full or half empty.
