BoChallenge Bi-Monthly Words & Photos: 1 – Legs

I’ve always trusted my legs to take me where I need to go and, for good reason, they always have. It’s probably by virtue of being my primary means of locomotion, but they’ve done a pretty good job so far. I’ve walked through nearly every major city in the United States and many elsewhere. They’ve climbed me up mountains, hiked me through forests, swam me in oceans, guided me across deserts, and generally powered my explorations of this world. They’ve kicked, jumped, powered, danced, ran, marched… my explorations of this world, my wandering, my adventures, have been on these legs.

…and I’m not sure I trust them anymore. They’ve stopped taking me where I think I need to be. To their credit, it could be my thinking that’s off, but I feel like I’ve come to the end of my road. It’s not that a lack of a road has ever stopped me, but I just don’t know where the next step is and without it, these legs aren’t doing me much good.

“You’ll have to decide for yourself. Walk on your own. Move forward. You’ve got a good strong pair of legs. You should get up and use them.” – Edward Elric
