Every journey you take starts with a thought placed in motion. You move forward, in your mind, in your footsteps. Sometimes you decide to go it alone, by choice or happenstance.
And if you are lucky, you find good friends along your way.
Like Dorothy found the scarecrow, the Tinman and lion.
And sometimes, like Alice (in Wonderland) you meet people who are just experiences, like the Cheshire Cat, Absolem (the caterpillar) or Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum.
Then sometimes you meet people who are dark and scary along your way. They always seem to be in pursuit of your light. And if you are lucky, your friends stick by you during your most troubled times.
Friendship is a special kind of love. You don’t always know why people do things for you when there is no quid pro quo, and yet, like magic, they are there… because that’s what friends do.
Life is a journey, and for the most part we walk alone. I have found that the good friends we find along the way is what makes the trip worth taking. Don’t forsake them.
I do not know where the road will go, and I’m not sure I want to know, but I hope that my friends will be there along the way.
