At the Crossroads – At a point of decision or a critical juncture. This phrase, based on the importance put on the intersection of two road since ancient times, has been used figuratively for a long time. First documented use of this phrase was in 600 B.C. by Greek poet Theognis’s Elegies “I stand at the crossroads”
Everyday of every week of every month of every year we come upon crossroads. At each of these moments a decision has to be made…..do I go straight ahead, turn left, turn right, go back, orjust stay where I am at. Every road is a new adventure and opportunity. All these decisions make us who we are.
TO DEEP…..I like to drive into the country in search of crossroads
When I find the right one I decide which direction to go……in search of things to photograph. Sometimes the results are total failure and other the results are magic.
So when you reach the perfect crossroad look all four directions before you decide which to take. It is simple you can go straight ahead, turn left, turn right, go back, or just stay at the Crossroads Cafe and eat Chicken Fried Steak and PIE!
Don McClean (of American Pie fame) wrote in his song Crossroads
But there’s no need for turning back
‘Cause all roads lead to where I stand
And I believe I’ll walk them all
No matter what I may have planned
