Have you ever wondered what lies beyond the known? Have you ever wandered beyond the known, yonder?
Mountains are usually “yonder”, you see them, far, reachable, yet unreachable. Early in my life that thought, the dichotomy of this “there, yet far” caused me to begin exploring, to wander beyond what I considered “known” at the time. The result was an incredibly empowering experience, combining things like excitement and fear, unknown and comfortable knowns. It caused me to stop often and think, analyze the risks and rewards, and in doing so, a whole world yonder was all the sudden available.
Why? Because I could accept the risks, I could control some of it, and I could welcome those pieces that I couldn’t. It built resiliency to the unknown, and I loved to venture there.
Let me ask again, have you ever wondered what lies beyond the known? Have you ever wandered beyond the known, yonder?
