This has always struck me as a pretty little spot, no less so with an absence of green and luxuriant foliage to adorn it. What I see is light and shadow dancing at my feet, a community of trees holding hands above my head, and the road before me rising up and disappearing into the woods. What I think is I'm so excited to see what awaits me around the bend.
There is something to be said
for not having the path laid out straight before you.
I am starting to see the beauty and find the joy
in the winding of the road.
