Forward or backward
Linear thought makes a choice
Seek another way
Accept the path less travelled
Or forge a path yet untrod
The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the Ridgeway, halfway between the White Horse at Uffington and the ancient tomb known as Waylands Smithy. It is the place where our adventures began, leading to the publication of The Initiate and all the books that followed… and the path we found there is one we still follow.
The Ridgeway is a prehistoric track, at lest five thousand years old, and still in use today. It used to run from the coast in Dorset, to the Wash in Norfolk, right across the country. Today there are still almost ninety miles of trackway left to explore, and following its route, many sites of ancient sanctity, from barrows to earthworks, circles to early churches…and the hill figures, like the White Horse.
I admit that I altered the photograph, erasing the words on the sign to give our storytellers a little more leeway… and to open the symbolism of the unmarked waymarker.
My thanks, as always, to all those who took part…over fifty of you this week!
I wish I could reblog all the posts… but they are all listed below, so please click on the links to read them and leave a comment for the author. Thank you too, to everyone who reblogged the prompt, round up and the individual resposes.
A new prompt will be published later today. I will reblog as many contributions as space and time allows, as they come in… and all of them will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.
Pingbacks do not always come through… and I can miss things too, so if you have written a post for this challenge and it does not appear in the round-up, please leave a link to your post in the comments and I will add it to the list.
A Reminder and an invitation
As there are usually too many contributions to reblog all of them every week, and so that we can get to know their writers, I would like to invite all writephoto regulars to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my guest! ‘Regulars’ does not mean you have to take part every week… Click here for details
Come and join in!
