Taking a New Path

The path we walk everyday can become ruled by repetition and obligation. Sometimes we trudge along just content with forward movement, unable to really observe the passing scenery. Simple beauty, like the gentle curve of a blade of grass or the slope of a hillside, becomes lost in the complex twists and turns of our life’s road.

Despite concerted effort toward a distant goal, we may wander and find ourselves looping back to where we began.

For the past two years, I have wandered the road of academia. Now, I find myself back where I was, but looking at the path ahead with a new perspective.

Where will this trail lead?
I don't know, but I feel ready for an adventure.
