Today is the day. I’m still a mixed bag of emotions, but am ready for what lies ahead.
On the threshold of a journey, I can’t help but think of the quote that inspired the title of this blog:
“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.” J.R.R. Tolkien
This quote goes with me not only in my heart, but physically. I got a necklace bearing Tolkien’s words for Christmas (Pictured below).
It’s a dangerous, wonderful, messy, beautiful world. As I go, I need to keep my feet, always remembering who I am and where I came from, lest I lose my way.
Sadly, I can’t promise frequent blog posts from this point onward. Once I reach L’Abri, I’ll be relatively off the grid. But, hopefully, I’ll be able to find ways to post every once and a while.
So, dear readers, wish me luck. The time has come to step onto the road and begin my journey…
