The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
(JRR Tolkien from The Fellowship of the Ring)
Today I mailed my acceptance form to Boston College. I’ve been warming, gradually, to the idea over the past week and excitement is beginning to seep in like warmth and feeling returning to cold fingers. I have no plans except to be swept up into this journey and try as I may to keep up. I don’t know what will happen next or where my life may go, only that I am going to Boston and I intend to have a fantastic adventure there.
