On my walk home from the beach, near the train tracks, I looked down and saw this fork in the road.
A single fork with nothing else around it; not a flimsy plastic utensil from takeaway, but a silver fork with a blue handle, part of set, I’m sure.
Thank goodness it was pointing in the same direction I was heading, because if not, that would have definitely caused me to stop and ponder my next step.
I’m not sure what, if any symbolism I’m supposed to glean from this random fork in the road, but I’m relieved to have quite possibly been given a heavenly sign that I was on the right path.
Regardless, it was the route that would eventually bring me home — and for me, like Dorothy, there’s no place like home.
I left it there to help guide others on their own journey, but I did bring home a silky black raven’s feather to add to my collection.
