Starting the Journey


Welcome to my Perching Post.

Life is a  fascinating journey; we may set out with a plan – route map, itinerary and compass (or sat nav) at the ready but we never know what’s round the next corner. 

Like the pilgrims of old, who’d set out on a quest to find what was important to them – it might be a place or a person – they had to undertake the journey.

As do we all.

Path along mountain ridge with hills in the distance.
‘The steep and rugged pathway…’

There’s a proverb that says, ‘a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,’ first found in the Tao Te Ching, a classical Chinese Taoist text usually credited to Laozi and probably written between the 4th and 6th century BC. 

As with every journey we need to take time out to refresh and re-energise.

To ‘perch’ every now and then.

I hope that the posts you’ll find on this site will help you relax, refresh and re-invigorate so you can continue your own amazing pilgrimage.
