Sunday Dinner: On the Path

Ocracoke Lighthouse April 2007

“There are no wrong turnings.
Only paths we had not known
we were meant to walk.”
Guy Gavriel Kay

Route 101 near Depot Bay, Oregon 2010.

“It is not we who seek the Way,
but the Way which seeks us.
That is why you are faithful to it,
even while you stand waiting,
so long as you are prepared,
and act the moment you are confronted
by its demands.”
Dag Hammarskjöld

Powhatan Creek, Virginia January 2018

“You never know what’s around the corner.
It could be everything. Or it could be nothing.
You keep putting one foot in front of the other,
and then one day you look back
and you’ve climbed a mountain.”
Tom Hiddleston

Yaquina Head Lighthouse Oregon 2010

“If you do not change direction,
you may end up where you are heading”
Gautama Buddha

The Colonial Parkway, Virginia 2014

“What you’re missing
is that the path itself changes you.”
Julien Smith

Near the York River, November 2014

“…the universe…sets out little signposts for us
along the way, to confirm
that we’re on the right path.” 
Michelle Maisto

No, the journey doesn’t end here.
Death is just another path.
One that we all must take.”
J.R.R. Tolkien
