A journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step ~ Laozi
I suppose today that is quite literally true. When we leave home today we shall be coming back the long way around. But in a more philsophical sense; I started this journey long ago. It was in what I now dub as “my previous life”; a girl walked into my shop…
We didn’t stop and stare into each other’s eyes in a moment of “we both knew”. But in that moment both our lives started a new path, it took a number of years for us to even know it.
How many choices, how many decisions led to us both being in exactly the right place, at exactly the right time?
So today we begin our greatest journey… We begin a new phase in our lives together… When we next sit in this room together, we will be married and we will have been around the world.
“In that book, which is my memory, on the first page of the chapter that is the day when I first met you appear the words, ‘here begins a new life'” ~ La Vita Nuova
