While reading the comments on the post The Universe Has Spoken – Explore More!, one by Raindog really cut close to home for me. Raindog said:
…I’ve been haunted by the OTHER roads. You know, the ones (dirt or paved) that you encounter in the middle of nowhere; the ones that spur left or right off the one you’re on; the ones that disappear over that far horizon; the ones that you might never get around to taking…
Yes. Yes, yes, yes!
How many times have you set aside an imaginary “next time” to try something? Sadly, I do it all the damned time. But, why? Fear? Is there some need for security or to follow a prescribed path?

Big thanks to Raindog for reading and sparking my imagination with the great comment!
