State / Province:

I Am a Human I Am Not Yet the Mushroom

Feeling torn in two?
This mushroom is still thriving, held together by threads.
Nature’s surprise after a summer’s rain. Still thriving, it greeted day-peep once more.
Maybe I’ll strive to be like the mushroom someday, maybe I’ll also accept that I’m perfectly imperfect.
For now, I know, I’m only human.

    A beautiful photo, Melissa, and a very inspiring message. Yes, we often look at nature’s quirks in wonder and appreciation, yet decry the flaws that make us who we are. I need to remember your mushroom 🙂 Well done.

    Wow. I agree with Sandra. It is an amazing photo, and the description is very inspiring. We are perfectly imperfect but we are created perfectly out of our imperfections. Nice.

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
