Rekindling the fire
Ever stood at a crossroads? Wondering what sits beyond the horizon? I'm standing at a crossroads now, trying to figure out the next step. Not sure how I got here. Maybe I have some ideas. Not sure where I'll end up. Maybe some ideas for that too. I just feel lucky to be where I am.
