Route 66: Leaning Water Tower – Groom, Texas
It wasn’t until I pulled up to the leaning water tower in Groom, Texas that I really understood that the lean is really pronounced from certain angles. Depending on how you approach it, your reaction might range from, “ok, sure, it’s tipped a little” to “damn, somebody is getting fired.”
Thinking about this tipsy water tower a little deeper, it feels like a metaphor for life. Depending on someone’s point of view, it looks like Hey! You’ve got it pretty much together! Meanwhile, if they just shift their perspective a little… you’re actually hanging on by your fingernails.
