September 19, 2018 – Detours

Sept 19aSept 19b

Step by step we walk. A pedometer is not really necessary. You can feel how far you have traveled. Each journey is different. You leave something of yourself wherever you go, and you take some of others along with you. Some trails or pathways you have ventured on before, but if you walk them again they are not exactly the same. Revisiting a path can be better because you are aware – aware of what was good and what was less than so.

C. S. Lewis said, “Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different?”

In October I will revisit a path with excitement and a new perspective – it is exciting because I WANT to do it. It is much akin to feeling like a child just before Christmas, or waiting for the tooth fairy or your birthday. Excitement does not end when you are older – it’s just that you often have “been there, done that and bought the t-shirt, so it has to be something really special to get you excited.

Just like “the beat goes on,” so does the path with its ups and downs and bends and curves. What’s around the corner? I KNOW it is something worth walking toward.
