I Have a Theme?

I had planned to configure the entire Spilled Candy website this month but I seemed destined to start with my own author site (dreadfully outdated) and launch a new site I’m working on, too. First. And meanwhile, I guess I have to learn some new software. Didn’t know I was going to be doing that, either, but I’m well-underway and haven’t pulled out all my hair yet.
But in working on my own site (not done yet!) I decided to add a quote or two to my “about” page and came up with four quotes that I really like and use a lot. I never made the connection until I saw all four on the screen in front of me, and remembered, too, that so many of my meditations feature roads, paths, and movement.
Here are the four:
“Not all who wander are lost.” — J.R.R. Tolkien
“Traveler, there is no path. Paths are made by walking.” — Spanish proverb
“In the middle of the journey of my life, I came to my self in a dark wood where the straight way was lost.” — Dante
“Two roads diverged in a wood and I—I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” — Robert Frost.
