A Lesson From Nature… revisited

…  contributed by Larry C.

This is a testimony to the popular axiom:

“Where there is will there is a way”.

With the following images you may find interesting parallels in your own life’s experiences…

Yihey!  Bravo, this snail made it!
But why the snail did not just try to cross on the wood bridging between these two woods… I wonder… Perhaps it knew that the green paint covering that wood was still wet and this would just give the snail a delay to its journey ? Or it maybe easy to cross over there but it might danger its life, who knows? So the snail chose to do the best it could to reach its goal, by trusting itself.  I guess the snail took charge of its own life and made a difference. Cool, isn’t it? 🙂

What about you? If you were this snail what would you do?



  1. Brilliant. I love snails, and collect ornaments of them. Not sure how many I’ve got, but on the last count it was at least fifty.

  2. I think I would find the easier and safest route. 😦

    Reblogged this on Wendy Powell.

  4. I did the same thing once, but my hat fell off. I suspect he was using a chin strap of some kind… : P

  5. Hey, my sweet Dolly, I’ve done this many times in life (as I’m sure we all have) though I’m glad that nobody was around to take pictures…..!!! 😉

    What a delightful series of photos–and a great lesson in perseverance too.

  7. I would go home and get a ladder or try extremely hard to persuade other snails to start a breeding program to evolve opposable thumbs

  8. Sometimes you have to stretch yourself to get to where you want to go.

    Shall we have a proverb war? Any takers?

  9. Determined little fellow, isn’t he? LOL … Mr. Snail is really stretching himself out to achieve his goal. We could all take a lesson from him. 😉

  10. Great lesson! [what a way to show it too!]

I'm delighted to hear from you :) Merci, beaucoup to all who clicked LIKE...
