I can totally relate to Cheri’s picture of taking a boardwalk path through a fragile eco-system.
I can also relate to my personal path changing dramatically in 2016. I, too, moved to a new place – to be closer to my job – and then experienced an abrupt twist in the path when my boss resigned. Paths can always lead to the unexpected, even a path you’ve traveled many times before.
Humans have a strong tendency to try to control and predict, to make crooked paths straight, to eliminate as much random chaos as possible. And that means we can often be frustrated, disappointed, or anxious on the path we’re traveling. But we don’t have to be. We can be delighted, wonder-filled and accepting. The path is what it is. How you travel and with what baggage is up to you.
A great collection of pics of paths. And a wise text to go with them. Thanks for sharing!
I’ve always liked taking pictures of paths. They seem so meaningful. Thanks for your visit!
The problems only come when somebody wants you to follow their path – your path is yours, mine is mine and theirs is theirs – sometimes our paths cross but often they do not.
There can be problems in the juxtaposition of the path in your head and the path at your feet, too. But the path in someone else’s head can be a definite obstacle!
A major source of stress, your juxtaposition/head/feet thought! Have a good Christmas!!
Thank you! I appreciate your visit!
Wonderful collection of paths!
Thank you! Glad you stopped by!
Great collection – it looks like you know your way around a long path!
Thanks! I’m glad you took the path to my blog – thanks for your visit.
