Our Sunday Stills prompt this week is “path.” Ahhh there’s a prompt I can really sink my toes into. I’ve traveled many, many, many paths. City streets to muddy back country trails and all have been marvelous.
A rainy day at market in Osaka, Japan. The golden statue is “Billiken” the god of Things as They Ought to Be.
Back country wilderness trail at Kolob Canyon, Utah
“There are many trails in this life, but the one that matters most, few men are able to walk … even Comanche men. It is the trail of a true human being. I think you are on this trail. It is a good thing for me to see. It is good for my heart.”
― Michael Blake – Dances with Wolves
Trails at the Grand Canyon
“Just because my path is different doesn’t mean I’m lost.” Then again…
– Gerard Abrams
Up the trail in La Plata mountains, Colorado
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
— Robert Frost
Path to the main temple at Honen-in Kyoto, Japan
“All that is gold does not glitter.
Not all who wander are lost.
The eld that strong does not wither,
deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
– J.R.R. Tolkein
This wandering walkabout was inspired by Terri’s Sunday Stills Challenge.
