Over, Under, and Through

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.  –Bilbo Baggins

“Let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.”   —Albus Dumbledore

Even the most well-trodden, repetitive road carries adventure if we can see it.  The roads connect the places we care about and connect us with strangers. Who will we meet? What will we see?

I love the fact that there are bridges and tunnels, that people have found a way to go over and under and through to explore and connect. It’s easy to take it all for granted, to get caught up in my thoughts and miss the journey altogether. But that’s missing out on the adventure that could be.
