Day 1395: The Choice is Clear

Yesterday, the choice was clear that I needed to take this picture:

It’s clear that nobody should choose to try to clear that  barbed wire fence.  Also,  the choice is clear in the upcoming vote of the next U.S. president.  But is the choice ALWAYS clear?

As I chose to write yesterday, when the choice is NOT clear, that can be painful. This morning, I choose to believe that unclear choices, over time, will become clear enough for me to choose well enough.

The choice is clear! I clearly need to trust my ability to choose, even if it takes me some time to clear my way to the better choice.

If I asked you to choose a favorite from the 30-something other photos I chose to take yesterday, would the choice be clear? And if the choice isn’t clear, what will  you do?

Yesterday, the choice was clear for me to post that last photo on Facebook with this caption:  “Scarred for life and happy about it.”

Because I’m going to see An American in Paris  in a Boston theater tonight with my friend Barbara, my musical choice is clear today:

 

If you’ve chosen to read my blog before, it’s clear that I choose to end each post with thanks to all  who help me create it  and to you — of course! — for choosing to join me, here and now.

  1. My choice is not clear, so I will just sit on the fence – the wooden one 🙂

  2. For so many of us, there was hope that there would be another choice. sigh…

    And as for the scar tissue…it tells your story, Ann. Wear it proudly. ☺

  3. I thought before I came here that I’d made a clear choice to not share a video. And I had a staggering number of reasons for thinking this was a good choice including not wanting to risk diluting your musical choice du jour, which I always enjoy, and also the feeling that my own words should be good enough.
    And yet here I am doing the exact opposite. I hope you enjoy the choice I’ve made.

  4. That photo of you is clearly my favourite!

    Hope you have a good day.

  5. The choice is clear to me: I liked the map with the pond. Water is my choice here in the desert.

  6. Too many great choices to make just one choice! HOwever…. the choice is clear for me — Not Art — lol — no such thing. All things are art in some form as they are an expression of our human capacity to create. 🙂

    oh. and the photo of you. Definitely my No 1 choice!

  7. I know the right choices to make today! Read and like your blog, and vote for the sane candidates!

  8. What IS clear is that you have a sense of humor. And that will do well by you forever.

  9. You and your scar! Clear choice.

  10. The choice is clear, and that is you’re a great photographer!

  11. I would sit on the fence but it has to be a flat one or I will end up with a sore bum, just saying, I do prefer a clear view so the choice is clear but with life it so often isn’t.

  12. I hope you had a terrific time! The choice is clear, you Rock Ann!
