"Journey's Pause" By Hanssie Trainor
The journey to find myself has been long and arduous. Riddled with unpaved roads and windy paths. People tell you to find North when you are lost, but when you've lived most of your life directionless, how does one even know or find "north?" The moment the shutter clicked for this picture on a trip to Africa, it reminded me that many of us are on a journey, some are forking their way through, some are meandering in circles and some have just sat down for a puase and figure out what to do next. In the years that this photo was captured, I've paused and sat many times, most of the time after stumbling, but those are the times that have truly guided me to find "North," and for the first time in my life, I am headed in the right direction.
