Forty Steps--Such a Short Distance


Such a short distance, forty steps. But how steep, and how high, and will our feet be bare and the pavement hot? No matter, we climb. Not because we're strong, or brave, or courageous, but because it's the direction we must travel. Peace to all those whose journey is tiresome.

  2. I have a particular distaste for being called strong. This is why.

    Peace to you on your journey too.

    Life and Death is but a breathe apart, but oh, the distance, the worlds between them!

  6. i love this. i too hate being told that i'm so brave or so strong, that they couldn't IMAGINE doing what i'm doing. there is no choice and you're right, it is simply the direction we must travel.
