Pathways

“There is an undeniable allure of what’s around the bend, just beyond view.  Roads taken, others not.  What haunts us more?  Where did they start?  Where will they end?

A child, at the beginning of life’s journey, running along a sidewalk.  An Old World alley, teeming with stories to tell and secrets to keep.  A young woman descending cathedral stairs, searching for faith.  A sandy footpath leading softly to the shore.  The wandering maze of a well-manicured garden purposely constructed to bring peace.  The end of a pier, touching the horizon.  The span of a bridge; a walkway carved through stone.   A noiseless forest trail fashioned only by time and traffic.

An ancient river, still making its way through a grand canyon.

When I wander I can’t help but wonder:  What would I see around that corner?  At the end of that alley?  Over the crest of that hill?

Paths, roads, trails – courses.  Ways through and ahead.  Some made by nature, others by human hands and minds.  Tracks showing our need to explore, discover, go further, farther…just one more step.”

Alisha Anderson
