“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
– Lao Tzu

As inspirational quotes go, Lao Tzu’s above is one of the most succinct and, well, inspiring.

But when you are over-analytical and indecisive like me, even the first step has its challenges.

“The journey not the arrival matters”
– T.S. Eliot

Eliot’s words are particularly true when the journey is made in good company. This shot was taken last year when the boy-child and I were on a road-trip to visit family in Whanganui. A-typically for a teenager (but typical of the photographer that he is), he insisted on an extremely early start so that we could experience sunrise on the Desert Road.
