To go north in the dark, and wait for the door to unlock, at the behest of a detached bureaucrat, has never been my wont.
On the other hand, knowing small children are waiting even in relative comfort, for direction and explanations, is enough to get me on the road, even at 3 a.m.
To stay behind and arrange a room, so that the next day will see people enter and feel welcome, appreciated, is worth all the time in the world, even if it is initiated by a timekeeper.
May the extra mile be filled with blessings for those whose tender souls rise each day, expectantly.
May it never find itself the tool of self-aggrandizement or a neurotic means to power.
