To see where it leads

We must face the fact that we have a responsibility to own what’s possible. Opportunity abounds. And that’s both a scary and a comforting thought.*
(Bernadette Jiwa)

“To learn” therefore means at root – at route – “to follow a track.”**
(Robert Macfarlane)

Remain curious in following the path
that may become hidden to you;
beyond is where the possibilities lie.

Aim not to say,
you have no time for this,
for in that moment, the emerging may be lost.

(*From Bernadette Jiwa’s The Story of Telling blog: The Bounds of Possibility.)
