Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Beginning

This is my contribution to Ese’s brand new Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge.

This is a quotation that I often use at school. The picture is of my footprints,  taken on 1st January just three week after my Mum died, a time when I was conscious  of the beginning of a new part of my life.

Footprints in the sand.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.   Lao Tzu
