'Sometimes life takes an unexpected wrong turn in the right direction' (Natalie Smith)

'One day you make a wrong turn, or take a detour, and you end up in some crazy place you can’t even find on the map, doing something you never thought you would do. Maybe you feel a little lost while it’s happening, but later you realise that was the best bit of the trip'

Your goals are the road maps that guide you and show you what is possible for your life. (Les Brown).

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage. (Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803-1882).

One minute of patience, ten years of peace. (Greek Proverb)

There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story.
