This is a great picture and symbol of what we're doing. One thing that jumped out at me when I first saw it is that the path leads ahead, and goes out of sight. We can never know where it will take us if we don't follow it. There seems to be a break in the trees ahead, but maybe that is not where this particular path will lead. Maybe that is a beautiful field of flowers, or a river we must cross.
We only know how far we can go and what wonders we can see when we get up and get going.
"Telemachos, your guest is no discredit to you. I wasted no time in stringing the bow, and I did not miss the mark. My strength is yet unbroken…"—The Odyssey, translated by W.H.D. Rouse
