Unusual Sighting


Crab in a tree

Once upon a tree

Crab leaves his comfort zone

Unhappily everafter

While on a recent visit to an Oregon coastal town I came upon this unusual sight as I was out walking to the beach.

There, high in a bush, was a crab. It was not alive, but it looked real.

I was puzzled at how it had gotten there but I never did find out, so I imagined the positive and decided it must have went on an adventure one day, took a challenge from a seagull to climb a tree and ended up not being able to get back down.

The positive part is that it was adventurous, it left it’s comfort zone and took a chance, many of us don’t do that out of fear or complacity, and even though perhaps the crab didn’t end up with the happy ending he’d hoped for, at least he won at his life’s challenge and

had the satisfaction that he tried something new.

Something to think about….
