Mind’s Eye: Heavy Plant Crossing

No, this sign doesn’t involve mutant plants on the run – although polysemicly speaking it could. In the UK the sign “heavy plant crossing” is used at construction sites such as road works where there’s large machinery and vehicles crossing that part of the road.

Also, “mind’s eye” is the cognitive ability to visualize i.e. experience visual mental imagery. It’s similar to the German “Kopfkino”, which literally translates as ‘head cinema’ and is used when one involuntarily pictures things or a situation in graphic detail.   : ]

Choices

If you really want to fly, sometimes you have to give up the things that are weighing you down. Your fears, your doubts and conformity might be holding you back from pursuing your real goals, from delving into your passion and freeing yourself from expectations. Some decisions are not easy to make, for they are not without sorrow and pain. But one truth is clear: no one but you knows best what you need. Don’t settle for anything else.
