The forest is up ahead.
I stride across the clearing of bright sunlight and plunge into the dark undergrowth. Brushing away the leaves of tender green and earthy brown, I rediscover the path running diagonally through the vegetation.
The flowers and grasses bend to the wind. The wind follows the sweeping movement of my paintbrush. The white paint I have dipped it in, sprinkles down over the grasses at my feet.
I stare ahead now and wonder where this path will lead? This is the adventure I’ve been waiting for, where the unexpected lies around every corner.
