Just back from a camping trip where I spent a lot of time walking and thinking about the idea of a path and how significant this is as a metaphor for all of us, as we move from one state to another, from one focus to another…   and then Gary put up this lovely quote, so I felt the need to make this collection of photos from Flickr – to find out who took them click on any of them and I’ve embedded the photographer’s info in the title.   What kind of path are you on?   Not just where is it leading, but what will the journey be like?  I keep looking for a quote that I think is from Caroline Myss, about how Ulysses journey and his adventures depended on who accompanied him…   who is going to be with you on your path?
As well, you might be interested in this upcoming class which Shelley Nessman and I will be leading.
