Alice Kingsley: Sometimes I believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked.

"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.

"I don't know," Alice answered.

"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

(from 'Alice in Wonderland')

from Alice in Wonderland (1951)

Any road will do. it's the journey that is the adventure, the destination

Lol, Anneliese, my daughter and I could be you and Alice's twin.

Difficult things take a long time, impossible things a little longer. ~André A. Jackson
Lilod, yes the journey is important, sometimes joining the beaten path and plodding along will lead to a successful destination.
posieh, you don't have to do anything or take any road.

Always loved Alicee in Wonderland. Forget who asked Alice who she saw on the road. Her reply "I see no one" Questioner, " I wish I had eyes that good that I could see no one".

My mind ofter works that way.

gandle, Lol, I think you and DH would understand each other very well. He also has the ability to see "no one". It's beyond me, but that's the way it is.
