Some paths are safer than others. Some you walk for the peace they bring. Drinking in the scenery and sense of calm. Other paths are less familiar and have strangers lurking there. These paths take greater effort to travel. These paths seem less safe. Here you can’t travel as you did on the safe path. No vehicles are allowed here…it’s just your feet and you. The rough route provides a sense of accomplishment just getting there. Sometimes a sense of danger heightens your awareness and makes you appreciate what you’ve got right in front of you. Vision seems sharperand sounds more evident. I like this path but it’s time to head back down the mountain.
