The path of our lives was worn in the dirt long before we arrived. I know there is some wisdom in this. I believe that a common good has determined many of the decisions regarding its direction. However, I know there are other factors as well.
I am a quiet and thoughtful traveler.
There is comfort in following the path. Your travel is easier. No one will question your actions. You will arrive at the same destination as those who have traveled before you. You will live their lives, tell their stories, raise their children, drive their cars, be buried content in the ground among them.
As for me, I am haunted by the thought that there is something else, something uniquely my own to know. It is somewhere off the path.
