begins with a single step
and mine begins now
“It’s a dangerous business, going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
- Bilbo Baggins from “The Fellowship of the Ring” by J.R.R. Tolkien
I cannot say with any degree of certainty what comes next or where this path will take me. But the adventure has begun. What I know is that I not going alone. I am surrounded by Sacred Presence, and I am surrounded by the connection I share with my family and friends. I am blessed beyond measure, and I trust that will continue to be true. And so, with an open heart and the confidence of a pilgrim, I step out my front door and onto the path. May it take me where I need to go.
“As you start to walk on the way, the Way appears.”
