I love mountain paths. You may not see around the bend, but you just want to know what’s there. Exploring new places, walking beneath the canopy of tall trees, out in the crisp air, I’m happy. Even if I don’t know where I’m headed.
You can get tired hiking along, especially if you’re going up a steep road. Just when you’re losing your gumption, you find that someone went before and built a bench for resting.
We may be homeward bound, but the path there may be full of loneliness and struggle. Another of Simon and Garfunkel’s songs has the line, “I’m empty and aching and I don’t know why.” In those times, look for the helpers around you. Someone has built a bench where you can rest, at least for a while.
Linking up with a song-inspired party, Song-ography. What a great idea!
What do you think about when you spy a mountain path?
How about you? What’s going on in your world this July?
