In the space between yes and no, there’s a lifetime. It’s the difference between the path you walk and the one you leave behind; it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; it’s the legroom for the lies you’ll tell yourself in the future.
― Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart
Below is the original photo used to create this image. Found a great moss and lichen bespeckled brick wall on an afternoon walk near Forest Hill Park, in Richmond, VA. No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
