A Thought

“At every crossroads on the path that leads to the future, tradition has placed ten thousand men to guard the past.”

-- Count Maurice Polydore Marie Bernard Maeterlinck (1862 - 1949)

This quote rings true to me. True not only for big social issues, but in our everyday lives as well. That constant struggle to keep what’s working smoothly, weighed against trusting our instincts and trying something new. Balance and risk...

I identify with that quote, balance and risk, hopefully, it is working for me. Love the pictures, you should publish.

Hi Gail-
I'm glad the quote resonated with you. Based on the big changes you've been making in your life, you've certainly been moving past all those "guards"!
And thanks for the compliment!
