Since childhood, he had loved the outdoors. Each day after school, he would run home from the bus, eager to trade his homework for his hiking boots and fishing pole. With the afternoon sun high in the sky, he would set out into the woods, brimming with excitement for the adventures to come.
After hiking through the woods and pulling in a few perch at the lake halfway down the path, the bright greens and browns began to deepen around him, slowly revealing the golden jewel toned colors and ethereal mystique of the woodland dusk. As the day creatures began to quiet, the evening came to life, calling him deeper into the wild.
The lake turned gemstone blue in the fading light, and the pines turned a deep, shadowy green. The boy looked longingly down the trail that disappeared into the wilderness and, knowing that his parents would soon begin to worry, he reluctantly packed his gear and headed home, vowing one day to find out where the path leads.
As the boy grew, there was much to do. Work, relationships, and obligations demanded his attention. On a college break, he returned home to find streets where the creek once flowed and houses where the woods once stood. Like a forgotten childhood friend, the forest was gone, and with it his hope of ever again following the path that once called to him.
But there was no time for grieving - there were deadlines to meet, and bills to pay, and people who counted on him.
Months turned to years and years to decades. One weekend, the man decided to take a walk in the woods to clear his mind from his hectic schedule. On an unfamiliar path, he walked through the dense woods and past the tall deep green forest pines. Coming upon a crystal blue forest lake, he sat for a moment, his muscles tired and aching. He ran his hands through his salt and pepper beard and, peering into the gentle ripples of the forest lake with the translucent golden hues of the falling dusk reflected all around, he vaguely recognized a familiar young boy with bright eyes and a love of all things wild.
As he smiled in the fading light, feeling like he had just reconnected with an old childhood friend, he knew that evening was approaching. Realizing that his colleagues would worry, he packed his gear and headed home - into the woodland dusk, following the only true path he had ever known.
