This week's Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily post at wordpress.com is "Big" and here's my second take on the theme.
As we point toward the future and march on, we will leave tracks of our passing. What size footprint we will leave is our choice. Big footprints should be left where we can leave a positive mark and make things better. Small and few should be our footprints in the places of beauty, the fragile places that benefit from our absence.
The best footprints are those left in the wet sand by our naked feet. Our dance with the incoming waves at the edge of the ocean teaches us a humbling lesson: We are a small, part of a much greater whole. But as our marks are washed away, we are also reminded that tomorrow we will have another opportunity to leave brand new marks, and start anew.
