Keeping My Feet
“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.” – Bilbo Baggins
Two weeks into IB and I feel like I’m living two lives. Today, I’m a turtle. Slow but steady, carrying much on my back… and yet… I know that with the right pacing and determination I’ll make it to the finish line… and be around for a long time.
Other days I feel like a leaf, being swept along in the current, twirling this way and that, as I try my best to grasp anything that will help me get my bearings. Fortunately, there have been a couple of branches hanging out over the water with which I can grasp and cling… Now to right myself and get a decent paddle!
