Sometimes we lose our way……..

Life’s storms can take us off course. Often we seem to instinctively follow others toward vague, ill suited goals. The photo below could replace the analogy of sheep following sheep. Perhaps salmon, off course, following salmon would be more appropriate sometimes.

The Chum Salmon left the ocean and entered Tillamook Bay and then per their genetics, the Kilchis River. However, torrential rains raised the Kilchis River well above the banks and into the pastures and out beyond flooding roads and nearby homes. The salmon lost their way, leaving their destiny behind and charting a new course. Many followed along, following the leader so to speak. All would die, as the water receded, they would find themselves far from their destiny, far from their life’s requirements…water, oxygen, reproduction. High, dry and eventually dead. Rebellion vs. conformity and then there is just a wrong turn.

The Chum Salmon have lost their way. Notice others, also lost, hold in the road side water, not yet prepared to push across the roadway. A sad event to witness, but impossible to help by now.

    One fish’s misfortune is just an opportunity for some lucky bear.
