Do you leave a trail that others can follow...

In life, there are no sure things...It is not a sure thing we will be here tomorrow.

In that case, for what ever reason, could someone else follow your files by the trail that you left.

Did you leave enough clues to the next direction to turn?

You may know what is going on with your files...but so should other just by looking at them.



This pile of stones wasn't just put here by someone for fun...It was a way to mark your trail years ago in the rocky areas of our country.   In one National park, this mark is still used to define the trail to a item of interest.

Hi William Feela that looks like a great way to mark a path. Kinda like an old marker and monuments used in early surveys.

Oddly enough, I've been thinking a lot about leaving trails others can follow lately.  Especially my family!  A lot of it has to do with organization, so the trail can be seen.

William, that pile of rocks must do a better job than,say, a trail of breadcrumbs

It's not an easy thing to do for others, William.  Though, I think most would be able to understand my filing system.

Good morning William. I love your perspective. You're right that your diection needs to be clear to anyone who would follow. Meanwhile I love the stones and the explanation.
