Often I have not known where I was going until I was already there. I have had my share of desires and goals, but my life has come to me or I have gone to it mainly by way of mistakes and surprises. Often I have received better than I deserved. Often my fairest hopes have rested on bad mistakes. I am an ignorant pilgrim, crossing a dark valley. And yet for a long time, looking back, I have been unable to shake off the feeling that I have been led – make of that what you will.
― Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow

Wonderful Quote and image to accompany it 😉
Thank you! The last two quotes fought me, but this one went together like a dream. Glad you enjoyed it.
I saw today’s quote and happily sighed . Wendell Berry is the perfect poet for self-reflection and growth .
Yes! Thank you. He turned 80 last year and is such an inspiration. Glad to share this with you.
Hi Kelly! I’d like to invite you to our next Open Mic on Sunday, February 22nd at 4pm. If you find and friend me on Facebook (Katherine Grace McDaniel) I can send you a link to our event page. Alternatively, you can send me an e-mail address through the contact page here on synkroniciti.
Will do 🙂
