Switching gears in life 在生活中的交换齿轮 ...


Life is like switching between the 
many gears in a vehicle
...
sometimes it is smooth sailing with a high gear,
sometimes on a bumpy and winding road;
we need to slow down to a lower gear,
and other times we need the reverse gear 
to take a step or two back a little 
before we move forward again
...

Nice photo with a nice text. So long the motor is going and the car is riding everything okay . But the stop can be planned or has a cause without your doing and the possibilities are endless.

Are you writing this yourself? This is unbelievable as far as I can judge. Also good matching picture.

Flashback to the distant past when I'd help my Dad when he worked on his cars. I was the gopher who got to "go for" tools that he needed! Your vehicle? I like thinking of life as the gears in a car!

Great close up. I'm sure mechanics have done its job properly.

Doug Hickok said...

Yes, this is a perfect analogy Wong! Sorry for the confusion on my post today, sometimes I try to be too clever... it is a collection of anti-spam "words" that bloggers must type in order to post a comment on some blogs.

Claudia said...
