347: PathPosted: September 5, 2011
This week’s Photo Challenge is Path. I have a fondness for photographing pathways and portals of all kinds, making this an easy challenge for me. Although I prefer to use new photos for challenges, I’ll have to dig into the archives for this one because M and I are in Detroit for the Detroit Jazz Festival. This is another scheduled post.
We’ll be home sometime today. I’m not sure how late or early we’ll be. It will depend on the weather, the music, our moods.
The photos in this post were taken in August of 2010 at Red Rock Canyon in Colorado Springs. It was a foggy morning so we were unable to see Pike’s Peak from the park.
The initial mystery that attends any journey is: How did the traveler reach his starting point in the first place?
~ Louise Bogan, U.S. poet, 1897-1970
There is an expression — walking with beauty. And I believe that this endless search for beauty in surroundings, in people and one’s personal life, is the headstone of travel.
~ Juliette de Bairacli Levy, Traveler’s Joy, 1979
The thing to remember when traveling is that the trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and you miss all you are traveling for.
~ Louis L’Amour, Western writer, 1908-1988
The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure.
~ Joseph Campbell
There’s some end at last for the man who follows a path: mere rambling is interminable.
Travelers, there is no path, paths are made by walking.
~ Antonio Machado
To find new things, take the path you took yesterday.
~ John Burroughs
How can you explain that you need to know that the trees are still there, and the hills and the sky? Anyone knows they are. How can you say it is time your pulse responded to another rhythm, the rhythm of the day and the season instead of the hour and the minute? No, you cannot explain. So you walk.
