When good is near you, when you have life in yourself, it is not by any known or accustomed way; you shall not discern the foot-prints of any other; you shall not see the face of man; you shall not hear any name; the way, the thought, the good, shall be wholly strange and new. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Okay. I will totally admit right now, I have no idea what Emerson is talking about here. Along with each of these little blurbs from Emerson comes a suggested question or thrust for the blog post. I typically ignore it. The one that’s attached to this one talks about taking alternative paths – being open to the possibility of new opportunities. And I can appreciate the need to be open to alternatives. Case in point… I got my first critique at the local writers’ group tonight.
