Where to Start?

Is that the first stumbling block
that halts many an expedition?
Where to start? Where will it end?
We don't know. So we don't go.

I just kind of went out on a walkabout. Started with an errand (pick up new glasses) and then worked my way back. It's no tax weekend so I avoided any areas where there might be mobs of back to school kids.

I decided to stop in at pier one cause I just want a simple bistro table and I was even willing to pay full price (although there was a big sale going on....)...but alas, even departure from the sale rule couldn't give me what I wanted.

So I got the stuff to build one. Broke another rule-it's okay to wack and cut on stuff from the goodwill-but I'm getting ready to do major renovations to an expensive (for me) and audacious ceramic platter-pictures to follow.

Ironically, the frame I aready had-yes, I bought another soon to be bird stand and poor Oliver is going to lose out again.

i wanted to write:
you are not that kind of person to let any block halt your journey... you find another way... or you may climb it or make a tunnel through it....
and now that i'm reading the comment above, see it's true...

I just wander around having my experiences and and thinking, "This spiritual journey is a pain in the ass, but it is interesting."

HB-you are so right. I'm learning to see the block, accept the block is there, and then move around it.

BBC-I am happieset of all when I do just that.

One of my favorite quotes that I'm sure you're familiar with bears repeating. "It's not the destination, but the journey that makes it all worthwhile." Stumbling included :)

thank you for this very simple, very profound statement. i have seen the stumbling block time and time again and let something that could neither speak nor move stop me from my destiny. pray that i don't trip while willing my foot over it this time.
