Sometimes, I really struggle with coming up with titles for Charlie’s pictures. This was one of those – I simply could NOT think of a good title for this photo.

Mike came into my office and I said, “I need a title for this! What is the title?!”
And he said, “Off the beaten path.”
And I said, “But… is it really? He’s only like a foot off the beaten path.”
And we both started laughing because we are sleep deprived.

And then I thought about it a little more, and realized, in this culture that desperately wants/needs us all to keep in line and tries to coerce us to stay on a path prescribed by others, being just a few steps off the beaten path can be an accomplishment. And that is worth celebrating. And thus, the title was decided.
