Forrest Gump's Feather

Photo taken in September, 2005 in Northeast Ohio.

Mrs. Gump: I happen to believe you make your own destiny. You have to do the best with what God gave you.

Forrest Gump: What's my destiny, Mama?

Mrs. Gump: You're gonna have to figure that out for yourself. Life is a box of chocolates, Forrest. You never know what you're gonna get.

-- Paramount Pictures, 1994

Tina: You're very observant about the clouds. They definitely were fast moving that day, shifting in the wind.
