Permanently Awry

Metal hatch with rust stains and yellow rope.

You can tell by the rust streaks that this hatch has been in this position for a very long time now. It is not on straight. (In fact, this picture is rife with wonkiness of all sorts.)

I suppose one way to take the moral of this image is something along the lines of “Don’t make that horrible face! It might freeze like that and you’d have little children running screaming from you for the rest of your life!”

For me, the lesson is more that age and gravity are going to have their way with you, no matter what. So you might as well take whatever attitude to life you like, even if—or maybe especially if—it’s a little askew.
