    Confident and optimistic, that is the way to look at the future ~

    I love the thought of following your shadow…but how do you know when you’ve reached your destination? (The devil made me ask!)

    Love this perspective of diving into the future ❤️

    Jaunty is the word that springs to mind for words and image. Made me smile.

    Great picture and a pithy sentiment, well expressed.

    Nice one! I hadn’t thought of it like that before, but sometimes we have to drag our shadows reluctantly behind us.

    I like this. That tune Me & My Shadow playing in the background, there are also echoes of an invisible playmate, an alter ego, a missing older sibling, leading the way, advising, holding your heart in its opaque hand. Delightful.

    Putting your best foot forward…delightful photo too!

    Shadows are such fun, the morning makes them hang behind. the afternoon lets them lead the way–a little fact I never focused on; thanks–smile.

    I was just re-reading that famous poem by Li Po, Drinking Alone Beneath the Moon. He also has a close relationship with his shadow. Love the confidence expressed in yours!

    One step at a time… I like that. Less chance of stumbling!

    I like the idea of following one’s shadow. Nice picture.

    Ha! Your feet now has competition. Nice one. 🙂

    Following the shadow does sound like a good idea. And into the future, why not?!
    Well thought.

    Me and my shadow, strolling down the avenue!

    Lovely! 🙂

    Let the shadow go first… just in case. Short and sweet, and a joy to read aloud.

    For someone with a jumpy shadow, always keep a sewing kit handy!
