“Always in the big woods when you leave familiar ground and step off alone into a new place, there will be along with the feelings of curiousity and excitement, a little nagging of dread. It is the ancient fear of the Unknown, and it is your first bond with the wilderness you are going into.”
–Wendell Berry, Naturalist–
This quote perfectly describes how I feel currently. Looking at the fear of unknown as my first bond into the future actually heightened my excitement!
