Slowly Disappearing



When I took this photo it made me think of life, in general.  How, sometimes, we can be consumed by things and the person we are slowly disappears.  



Thankfully, with a little work, this barn could be taken back from nature.  People are like that too.  It just takes a little work.  

Linking up with Tom today......

  7. Why have you got me thinking of "Jack and the Beanstalk"
    "Me eat 'em up! Said the Giant."

  10. Like your old barn and those that Tom took pictures of too. Your statement is so true.....I have heard the minute you are born, you begin to die, fade, or whatever it is called.

  11. The second law of thermodynamics strikes again!! . . .. chaos comes out of order and it takes work and intelligence to restore things . . . :)

  12. I wish it was as easy to restore a person as it is to pull vines off an old barn. :-) ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  14. What a wonderful analogy, Michelle, and one that is so true. That said, I'm not too sure about salvaging that barn as the greenery may be what's keeping it upright now.

  16. The deterioration in the body and the nature has been themes I've been occupied lately as well ~ yet they're part of the natural cycle .., trying to find beauty and appreciation in each phase and season (yet dreaming of being 'forever young' at the same time :)

  17. Beautiful - but I wouldn't want to take it back. Sometimes the change is for the better and it's all a matter of perspective. I enjoy your blog and your thoughts.

  18. Thanks Michelle for linking up this week. I was out yesterday prowling around for barns and found several that nature was reclaiming. Nature is a strong force! Tom The Backroads Traveller

  19. My my my, Michelle. That is a sobering observation.

  20. It looks like it would take more than a little work...but well worth the effort. I always think if it trees were cut back and vines pulled when they first started it would be so much easier.

  21. Hi, Michelle...this is such an awesome photo....do you sell copies of your photos..?? You really should, you know. I sure would buy this one.
    And, I love your views on different things in life. I've learned to re-think several things after reading some of your very wise words. I wish I lived close to you for a visit every now and then. :) I'm so glad you are a blogging buddy.
    xoxo

  24. A really picturesque disappearance...

  32. Love the barn and the covered look . . . beautiful setting, picture.
    Ivy does play havoc with the wood though . . ,

  33. great image and words of wisdom.

  34. Lovely thought and photo, Michelle. I think it would take a little more than a little work to re-claim this barn, however. We once had a fence covered with ivy. It looked pretty but when we tried to replace the fence the ivy was so difficult to remove!

  35. Lots to think about in this post. The photo is beautiful!
