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.

Wanted to thank you for a great tour last night. This was our first time on a Bird Walk and my family and I had an amazing time. You were a great guide and you've inspired me to definitely continue with my self education in exploring nature.

We were the middle aged (latino) couple with our three year old daughter wearing the zoo binoculars.

Thanks again- Anna
PS...I found your blog by accident. I hope you continue blogging.
