It takes a great deal of courage to live out your dreams. It’s terrifying to step off the well-traveled path and clear your own trail, one that is certain to be laden with complications. Eventually the path will lead to an obstacle that will seem insurmountable…a veritable mountain or cliff. As you gaze into the heights above or the depths below you are faced with a choice and all logic will tell you the quest is impossible. Most will give up at this point, turn around and head back toward the safety of the well-traveled path. But not you, after dismissing all the options that you know won’t work, you will simply discover a new one and cross over into a world very few have the courage to go.

This one is for all my friends who are blazing their own trail. Godspeed.
