2016-12-29: WPC Path

The end of the year is a great time to reflect on the path that has been travelled over the year, and the ones that you hope to travel on in the coming year.  2016 has been an interesting, and really good year.  The photos below encompass some of my thoughts about the various paths that I am on.

There are times when the path is clear; you know where you are going and the way is easily defined.  If you have to retrace your steps for some reason, it’s easy to get back where you started.

On some days, the path might seem barren and you feel all alone, but you never know what might pop up ahead.

Sometimes others will doubt that you are on a path at all; they will question your direction and your vision.  But you know exactly where you are going.

Sometimes you need to create your own path.  You can’t see where you are headed, and if you try to turn around, the way is just as obscured.  Going on intuition is the only way forward.

Sometimes the only thing to do is take a break, rest, and return to the path later on.  This is especially true when you have no idea what you are doing, or where you are going!
