For most of the past summer, this word, “INTREPID,” has been passing through my mind. Rather than passing, you could say it was stuck there. It was my instinctive response to many thoughts and situations—keep going, diligently, toward the ultimate end goal without regard to the current circumstances . . . that’s what it means to me.
This image has been in my mind for a while. I’ve wanted to share it on this blog because the diligent ant, doggedly finding food and bringing it back to the nest, is an appropriate representation of INTREPID I think. But do you know how hard it is to take a picture of an ant? They move fast! Luckily, there are tons of ants around Sedona, so I had plenty of opportunities. I finally took a clear one that is close enough to see. This little guy was scurrying with his friends on a sidewalk near my home.
Do you have any other symbols you think would work just as well or better? How have you exhibited INTREPID in your life?
