What's Your Point?

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own 'greatness'
thinking we are so very significant in this universe...


not realizing that we are but a tiny little speck


surrounded by other tiny little specks


just trying to get through the day...

and you wonder

"What's the point?"

I think I lost my 'point'
and I'm trying desperately to find it...


or maybe I just need a vacation...

There are times I think that way...definitely time for vacation! Just last night, there was a ladybug in our house. I had to chase it out of house before my kitties catch and eat it!

Then there are those days when you are all too aware that you are just a speck. :) That's where I'm at these days--tired of the struggle of the life of a speck. I wanna be a RICH speck so I don't have to work to pay bills and other assorted boring stuff!

I need a vacation too. Sigh.

Sandra said...

beautiful photos, so for today THAT is your point, using your God given talents with a camera, and you do have talent. take a vacation and grab your camera and do more posts.

A vacation is good. :-)

I admit it's been decades, probably my teens, since I thought of humans as "great," and I never have thought of myself that way. Of course, that, too, has its own set of problems. LOL.

But it wasn't until about 40 or so that I realized life *is* intrinsically meaningless (IMO), but that doesn't mean we can't create meaning for our Selves.

I'm still working on that one. But I think we do that through following our bliss, if we know what that is, or being in service to something other than our petty selves--to non-human animals, to humans, the environment, whatever speaks to us. And through kindness and compassion, as His Holiness the Dalai Lama advocates.

So while life just is, we still can make the time we have here meaningful to ourselves and to those around us.

That's all we have, and all we can do, I believe.

Beautiful photos Catherine. Hope you have a wonderful week. Hugs to Banjo. :)

Teresa Evangeline said...

These photographs are beautiful, and very creatively composed. Perhaps that's point enough for this moment.

Brian said...

I know you will point yourself in the right direction!

LĂșcia said...

Sometimes I feel so lost...
I need a vacation too! ;-)

TexWisGirl said...

i have been searching for my point for a while now. i hate not having a purpose or a goal or a dream.

Linda R said...

That happens to me all the time. Then the "point" comes to me and wakes me up out of a dead sleep at 2 in the morning. What the heck!!

Love your photos my friend.

Hugs~

I believe the greatness of the universe can be seen in the minutia of the world.

once again, more beautiful photos..

It's me said...

Susan said...

Even that little speck of a bug has a purpose. We all do. But a vacation is also a good idea!

Carolynn Anctil said...

I have moments of greatness, but for the most part, I know I'm not a major player. I love ladybugs! How did you find one this late in the year?

Ann said...

There are days when I feel like I'm a hamster running on one of those wheels and getting nowhere. I love your pictures. That little bird is so cute

Becca said...

I believe your point was to just make us smile with you beautiful photos! I especially LOVE the las one! Take care my friend!

Hot Rocks said...

Most of us are tiny specks. But who cares when you are on vacation?!

BeadedTail said...

I've been thinking pretty much the same thing lately. I know for sure I need a vacation and maybe you need to take one to, let's say, Oregon! :) Your photos are gorgeous by the way!

S. Etole said...

The point is you take great photos!

michico*Adan said...

These photos are beautiful!
I believe you will find the way out, just need sometime to precipitate yourself.

Donna said...

you may think you are a tiny speck and maybe we all are...but...you have been such an inspiration for me and my blog. My happiness project one-sentence journal has entries in it everyday. So "little speck" Catherine, keep shining your little light!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,
You were right with your title! We indeed are more like little busy ants, moving around and carrying things... But it is nothing when stepping back and looking at the total!
Hugs to you and hope you find some fuzzy time inside.
Mariette

Madge Bloom said...

Hey, I need one too... where would you like to go?? :-)

Laurie said...

Your blog is just a speck in blog land Catherine, but a speck loved by many! Your "point" brings happiness to all of us! Now go take a vacation.Even take Banjo along!

Sylvia said...

Something to think about ...
Lovely photos, Catherine !
Hugs,
Sylvia

Barbara said...

I know exactly what you mean. I feel that way sometimes too. Hope you get a vacation!

Christine said...

Being unemployed and feeling useless I understand. Try climbing a mountain like the one that ladybug climbed and you WILL feel invincible!
:)

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

What a beautifully said sentiment. We are small in the big picture of life, but we can do big things...like help someone else or even just make someone else feel better about themselves.

Pantherka said...

Beautiful photos ... point I'm sure you'll find soon. Sometimes it will fall ...

Kerri said...

A Beautiful Series ...... I hope you find what you're looking for :)

Justine said...

brilliant and so true! love your pictures too

troutbirder said...

A picture is said to be worth a thousand words... so sometimes we really don't need to go on and on...:)

GreatGranny said...

Very thought provoking. I love your photos. I'm always on vacation...lol

Katy Noelle said...

Oh, I just blogged something with that in mind! ;)

I don't think it's wrong to keep it in perspective that we're a speck. It lightens our perceptions up. Just as long as we know that we're a lovely lady bug of a speck! =]

Mary Ann said...

Beautiful photographs:)

Catherine said...

I am taking a break tomorrow...going to the sea, which is the BEST for me!

Michael Manning said...

I have the same dream I've been struggling to carry forward since the 6th grade. I've achieved some, but not all of it. Thank God I'm still at it!! It keeps the child in me alive!!!

BumbleVee said...

okay that made me laugh...and I almost wanted to say.. it's on the top of your head....but, that would seem rude if you couldn't see my face and hear me giggling at you....
