That image on our left led to another two parter, although each post was titled differently. It's another one of those gems that I found on Google+. Thanks again to Neil Kremer for permission to use it.
The Queen Mary is permanently docked in California. This is the dock across the harbor. When I first saw the picture, I was online on a small screen netbook and I missed the expanded platform at the end of the dock. But even with that, there’s still a sense of the Queen Mary being the goal and this was a bridge that was never completed to get there. Sure, you could swim from here, but you’d never reach the goal in any shape to take full advantage of it. And I thought it was a great description of life, on several levels.
