the shape of your path

Scrooge by ilina s."Every moment in your life is a turning and every one a choosing. Somewhere you made a choice. All followed to this. The accounting is scrupulous. The shape is drawn. No line can be erased. I had no belief in your ability to move a coin to your bidding. How could you? A person's path through the world seldom changes and even more seldom will it change abruptly. And the shape of your path was visible from the beginning."
Cormac McCarthy

These words are very true. Our life is very much versatile and its path is even more random!

Surreal. What a photograph.
Stunning. What a quote. (I immediately Googled him, as I've not read his work...but that will change.)

More of McCarthy's eloquence! That photograph is a perfect illustration. Is the blowing of the wind already foretold?
