I like when the paved road becomes a dirt road. I like it even more when the dirt road becomes a trail. My favorite is when the trail becomes a slim clearing and then … that slim clearing disappears.
… which to some is the end of the road...
BUT … to others it is just the beginning.
I like exposed ground beneath my feet; moist dirt, bumpy pebbles, protruding roots. I like the raw, untethered land, unbroken ground, unhappening potential.
Find me on the less-beaten trail.
Find me off the trail.
Find me creating my own trail -
and there walking - long.
Getting lost on purpose is under-rated.
After all, who wants to only ever go where others have gone before?
There is a time to follow -
and there is a time to stop following -
