I like sign-posts. Strange but true. I like the implication of choice, journey, mystery. And sometimes comfort. In a fit of creativity my children and I made a sign post yesterday. Unlike some of our craft projects, it turned out well and we were all very satisifed. It was a democratic project – we all got to choose mythical places that meant something to us. We all helped.
And we all recognised that although our choices were different, they were all valid and meaningful to the chooser.
Here’s another signpost I found, mossy and mysterious, in a piece of ancient woodland in Wales.
I like the ambiguity. It is not giving much away about destination. These tracks are definitely about the journey and not the goal.
I wonder what your personal signpost would look like? What would it say about you? Would you be happy about your initial ideas or want to change it?
