At a time of reinvention, I keep coming back to a quote I learned long ago…
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” Lao Tzu
Watching ducks paddling along in the marsh channels is a kind of Zen thing for me.
Often seen two by two, they glide together slowly, as if they were one.
Side by side, or in single file.
Pressing into the water that fans out behind them…
Yet you never hear a sound.
But if you listen very carefully, really listen… you will hear them whispering softly to one another…
“Paddle on, paddle on, just keep paddlin’ on…”
