The Lady's Journey
“…Lady Aberline focused her mental and physical energies on the task that awaited her.”
What? What? The old man said, startled. He opened his eyes and turned around, still holding tightly to the book on his lap. Well! It’s you again. Good to see you, my lad. Have a seat, and I will tell you another story.
From the book I hope, said the boy.
Yes, yes! From the book. So, where should I begin?
What type of relationship do these two characters have?
In the beginning.
In a previous article, I talked about “Cheating Your Way to the Top“. Although the focus of that article was “making a pact with a higher power” to achieve your goals, the broader idea of attaining something by not earning it applies to many things. I am not saying that the desire for something is wrong. Many people want to achieve certain things in life – riches, fame, power, health. However, how we get to those ends does matter. In fact, the journey to success is probably more important than achieving that success. Allow me to state my case.
