Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward – Spirited Snail on a Rainy Day

This photo is part of WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward – my entries for other weeks can be found here.

Spirited Snail on a Rainy Day by Seas Reflecting Starlight.

On a rainy day in central China, a snail scooted along an ancient stone wall.  The snail moved with a great sense of purpose, and amazingly fast for a snail.

Even on gloomy “days” of our lives, we need to keep moving forward as best as we are able.  This snail didn’t let the weather get it down – on the contrary, the moisture probably made it easier to move across the wet surface of the stone.  Perhaps that was the silver lining for the snail.

How can you best utilize the day’s circumstances to move forward in your life?
