At the end of the lane there was a gate, and that was as far as we ever went, well, except for a few steps. But it was a sort of natural boundry, a turning point. You could rest a minute, savouring the crispness of the woods, the quiet. It was a good place to stop, to turn back to the house awaiting you down the hill, to the hot pot of tea and cookies. But sometime I want to go beyond it, to explore......
And so we come to the end of the challenge! I expect many more walks await me, past gates, through chapters in my life. There is nothing like a good walk to rejuvenate the soul.
I have had a wonderful and blessed year in 2008! I look forward to seeing what is around the bends in the road of 2009!
