Taking a Chance

Life’s big events, like a cancer diagnosis, ripple change through our lives: Ripples in our choices, ripples in our perspective, ripples in our relationships.

Reminding us that a slow and steady pace moves us steadily toward a goal, the faux tortoise shell finish on this table forms the foundation. Just like our routine days, the mottled black and grey colors get all mixed up with the metallic copper and gold. Each day we can chose to focus on the drab monotony or we can look for the hidden treasures. The tortoise shell table top is protected by glass with an etched checkerboard, reminding us we are all playing the game of life. A gold box on the shelf holds checkers made with colorful fly fishing lures reminding us of the beauty that comes with learned skills. Every day we become stronger in our abilities. Every choice uses practiced abilities to help us land the Big One.

Whether it’s taking a chance on love, making the next career move or picking up a new hobby, our life ripples with change – and each change brings a new, enhanced perspective. Take a Chance!
