The Journey

This is my journey. As long as always follow the trail, I shall reach the destination at the end, be it easy or rocky, bright or dim, ascending or descending.


There are always twists and turns awaiting me somewhere, or I may pick my pot of gold on some of the days, otherwise it is just one ordinary day to me.

This is the journey which I have chosen.

And this is the journey of the colony of ants. They have their own invisible trail which they will follow by the rule.

They have to ascend or descend along the journey which is not much different from mine.

They may occasionally stop for some checking, but the travel will continue.

Same as mine, just keep going on.

The journey is what makes everything else great. The little stops along the way help make the journey what it is. We are all on a journey, and I hope yours is always a good one.

Cher said...

allow me to paraphrase a quote, "life is a journey and nature makes the trip worthwhile." :)

Footsteps said...

But for the lush trail side foliage, your path reminds me of a couple of western US trails I've hiked.
Well said.

The pots of gold along the way make the journey all worth while. i hope you find many.

Mike said...

rainfield I am a journey person. I always seem to enjoy the journey more than the final destination.

AVCr8teur said...

It looks slippery when wet. As for the ants, they look huge. Human and creature sharing paths.

Chandrika Shubham said...

Good pics with great words. Cool post.

Best wishes.

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

When I look at the pictures, it reminds me of Little Riding Hood taking the trail to visit her grandma. Have you ever encountered any wolves along the way?

Willie a.k.a Reptoz said...

Uh I must say, walking in the jungle is really a healthy activity. It is good that you spend time with nature.

Misalyn said...

So lucky that I had a return time today, can't help but peek on what's new :)

I hope that you'll find pots of gold and you will share it with us hahahaha.

Keep journeying Rainfield.

What a gorgeous journey with that light at the end of the path - it's calling to you. Beautifully captured and expressed Rainfield. Those are some big ants too :D
