Etched in Stone

The paths are many for the same destination. Many have traveled this way before.

The journey may be arduous but the reward is great.

You don’t need a map.

You don’t need an app.

The distance isn’t far, though it might take a while. Being in a hurry won’t help.

Going all the way to Ballintubber Abbey in Ireland’s County Mayo isn’t necessary but it will certainly make the trip more memorable. Hearing a message that’s been a staple of an 800-year-old place makes a succinct point.

So put down your phone, banish all distractions and get going to find that certain something inside.
