Quo Vadis?

I don't know where to go from here

I don't know where the road will lead

Or even if there is a road

Or only a dead end

Barb wire and cross posts

Saying here but no farther

I should be afraid

But I'm too tired

Too lost to care

When you get to the place

Where you have to get out and walk

Even breadcrumbs would help

But if the birds ate them all

Then what?

Reminds me of Thomas Merton's prayer from "Thoughts in Solitude".

Thanks Dave.

And dave, thanks for reminding me of Merton's prayer. I'd read that before; but forgotten it.

Must have been a subconscious memory bumping around in my head when I wrote this bit.

Sometimes the unknowns in life can seem kind of scary. The flip side of that, I guess, is the excitement of experiencing something new.

My nature is to prefer things to be a little on the predictable side, but I don't always get what I want. Oh well! Side B makes me take a look at possibilities I might not otherwise have thought of.

Take care, Russ.

Thanks Gary. Life is always a surprise, that's for sure.
