A Path Maker A path maker, beats a path in deep snow, walking to, then from, so older ones, those not so sure of foot, smaller of stature, or a woman with child in arm can get through without stumbling. In his dream, the path maker helps people along their own way; he extends a helping hand, a kind thought, offers a poem to warm a heart, awaken a soul; or make a memory turn into a smile... I realize how each individual must walk his own path. This does not mean, however one cannot lovingly track a pathless void with a few gently placed golden markers. Love doesn’t just push into the unknown, sometimes it walks just ahead.
