January 29. Day 29. Trying to keep things in perspective

It's three in the morning. You wake in a blind panic, body lathered in a cold sweat. something insurmountably awful is happening at work, to your body, with your family. Whatever. You can't sleep for what seems like an eternity but eventually as the first rays of light emerge you fall into a coma only to wake later feeling like a zombie but asking yourself  "what the f*** was that all about?". In the cold light of day you realise that you had done that mountain from a molehill thing in your head. Some times it is really hard to keep things in perspective. That's what I like about the two images I took this morning seconds and metres apart. The first one reminded me of the biblical quote "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven". Yep, even when I learned that the eye of the needle actually referred to some small pass in the walls of the city, that still seemed pretty hard. Trying to raise Stefan's Eye Needle with a crane would also be bloody near impossible. But look at the same thing from another angle and you realise that all in life is not as it seems. You were worrying over nothing. This is what I have been trying to tell Drama Teen who is approaching Year 11 with something near the 3am blind sweats thing. Give it time, sleep on it and approach it from another angle and you will see the blue sky in between.
