One Path Leads to Another


This week’s photo comes from Ryder-Walker Tour Leader, Porter Teegarden. She shot this photo during last summer’s Italian Dolomites Trek.

Myriad interpretations filled my thoughts as I stared at this photo. I thought about all of the beautiful places that our hiking boots may carry us. I pondered the growth that we discover within ourselves when we experience new landscapes and cultures. I entertained the thought that despite fresh journeys in life, the indelible marks of past adventures stay written deep within. The composite experiences of former journeys render the life giving nourishment that inspires the blooming of the soul.

Our journeys never really end. Just like summer’s bounty prepares us for the leaner times of winter, so does winter offer a time of preparation for trails yet unexplored. The end of one path in life simply leads to another of immeasurable beauty.
