‘A long road takes endeavour to unshroud.’

In good company, with wit and camaraderie the journey becomes less endurance or improbable odyssey, but unadulterated enjoyment and joviality. This road spiraled through mountains and dales; up steep pike and down into fathomless ravine. The toll is intolerable; yet everyone pays the same. Ascending the incline, all must persevere.

To the sides of the road stood tall pines, reaching for the azure and exquisite skies. With weary souls everyone walks the road. Ever aspiring to greater heights, avoiding careless undulating decline.

‘It’s a long road leading to the top of the mountain.’
