Have you ever considered the meaning of a path? A path represents connection. Physically, it connects its origin to its end point. but it does more than that. Someone at one time was the first to explore where there was no path. We who follow have connection to that person, as we do to all who have since followed and worn the path.

Not all paths were intended. That is, not all paths were constructed as legacy for those who would follow. But some quite obviously were, those peppered with land mines for instance.

Most paths are not straight, but over time with much use they often come to represent the route of least energy expended.

By literally walking in another's footprints we can see, hear, and perhaps experience what they did. By walking certain paths we may connect to our ancestors. By walking others we might also connect to other species: bear, deer, moose.

Whatever path we choose, there will be consequences, for us, for those who may follow in our footprints.
