“If you walk on snow you cannot hide your footprints.” George Herbert
Yesterday was cool, bright holding the promise for a pleasant hike in the woods. I started on the trail and then saw footprint off trail in the snow. Which direction should I go? Should I follow the established trail that was stamped down by the footprints of many hikers before me? It was a trail that I had walked before.
Should I go off trail and follow these footprints to see where they lead? I was intrigued, and decided to follow the footprints in the snow. I thought about Herbert’s quote that it’s hard to hide footprints in the snow.
Do you follow an established path? Or are you a trailblazer? Or are you a little of both?
