#168 The Road Less Taken


A road you've never taken is one where both the journey, and the destination, is unknown. Each twist and turn, each bump and pothole, each time the road curves around a corner beyond what you can see, and each time it appears to lead you forward, only to double back before heading off again...  yup, that certainly fits the description. And just as it is in life, the journey as well as the outcome isn't known before hand. 


Why then would anyone ever take a road less taken, when it's safer to simply hew along a familiar path? The short answer: because that's how life works. We explore, we discover, and then we learn. It certainly doesn't hurt to get completely lost every now and then, if only for a chance to discover what we could be missing all along. That's life. Enjoy. 

(Pixel-peepers: I was eyeing this winding road amidst the backdrop of a most unusual landscape. The scene looked interesting but it lacked a focal point. Nonetheless, I took one shot and moved on. Moments later I saw this biker bouncing down the trail. Could he be that missing element? The only way to find out was to try it. The road less taken.)

But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (murilloarnel@yahoo.com), one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers.  Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas.  No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr. Aldrin Suan at aldrinsuan@yahoo.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
