Are you going to walk through the mud or take the detour?
I came across this sign on a walk during a writer’s retreat in the Catskills with my friend and poet Marcia B. Loughran. This was a few weeks ago – remember when life was normal (or so we
thought). What struck me is that there are always choices even in the most difficult of times.
Are you going to walk through mud or take the detour? And you know what, beautiful people, whatever you choose is the right one. And this is not in some cosmic “let’s hug some trees” kind of way. It is the truth. What you choose is what you need and you will be ready for it. You always are. So, put on the boots and get muddy or walk the smoother, gentler path, also fine.
