Today, as I was hiking in the woods I decided to take a trail I had never been on before. There is always something a bit unnerving about exploring a new trail in the woods. You don’t know what to expect or even where the trail will lead. I thought that was a perfect metaphor for life, at least my own. There are so many times that I continue to travel the same old comfortable trails because it is safe. It is always exciting when I have the courage to take a new path.
On this same journey I encountered a young deer. We stood and looked at one another for the longest time. I kept myself as still as I could manage. I was aware of how I wanted to fidget and move and just continue walking even though I was blessed with this opportunity to commune with this gentle creature. I was imagining that the deer and I were deep conversation with one another when I noticed it craning its neck to look behind me. I thought it was another walker out in the woods enjoying the fall day. When I turned to see what it was I saw another deer only a few feet behind me on the trail. As soon as I turned both deer bounded away. . .
