The goal, the distraction and the wonder

The question then is how to get lost.  Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognito n between lies a life of discovery.*
(Rebecca Solnit)

This truth works out in many places at many levels but today it may be in the person who stops you doing what you have a mind to do and in your turning towards them and giving your attention to them something wonderful appears.

(*From Rebecca Solnit’s A Field Guide to Getting Lost.)
