How often to you venture into the unknown?
When all alone in a place you’ve never visited before, what knowledge, tools, or techniques do you use to find your way back to a safe place?
And when you stop to think about it, are we ever truly in mortal danger? Hmmmm … Perhaps there’s the one in a million chance that a tree limb might fall and end your hike. But are we not better served to focus on simply listening to the wind or keeping our eyes and ears open for signs of wild life while enjoying ourselves on a sunny day hiking peacefully in a National Park?
NOTE: Not all tales conclude with “happily ever after.” But until you take those first few steps, you’ll never know how the story ends let alone enjoy the journey.
