Here I am, now in March. Where have I come, what have I crossed and where will I continue? I never quite expect where I end up or have learned to map out what is coming just around the corner. I suppose that's half the journey. Everything effects everything. Life is wonderful with all it's open paths. The scenery constantly changes and thank goodness. At times, the change is an awkward challenge but becomes natural, and confidence grows with the bends.
- - - I go - - -
I don't mind taking the long way.
Maybe it's the curiosity and the thirst for experience stitched in me but I'm enthralled at the beauty I find when I take the time to look and observe as many hidden and open details as possible. The Earth is beautiful. It is both empowering and humbling.
I have gone forward, not sure as one travelling in a road cast up and well prepared, but as a man walking through a miry place, in which are stones here and there, safe to step on: but so situated that, one step being taken, time is necessary to see where to step next. -John Woolman
So as the days progress, I will continue to breathe it all in and love each twist and pathway. Life is beautiful! Dust clouds and bumps make the character and once settled, open the view. There is always something good to look at.
