Always forward. Never Straight.

I took a walk today.

I thought I knew where I was going, but about half way there I realized that I did not really know why I wanted to go there. So I took a left.

Walked a few dozen feet and took a left again. I have been on this road before, but never walking. And after a few hundred yards never driving either. Perfect!

It seems I was looking for something again. And as usual I had no idea what it was. Time to let my soul eyes wander as my feet were and see what could be seen.

What was I looking for? It came to me that quite possibly what I was looking for and what I needed to find were not the same thing. The key to finding again.

My feet continued to wander forward. My mind continued to wander in circles. I walked. And I thought.

And saw many new things. Yet still I did not know what I was looking for. After a while the road I was on ended and I had to choose left or right. Seemed left would likely return me to something familiar, so I went left again.

Another circle yet I was still moving forward. Odd how that works. I did not see many other people. Well at least many other people outside of cars. I was interesting some of the looks that were thrown my way.

I had never been on this road before. despite the fact that I knew its name and have lived near it for years now.


I continued to walk forward, and after a time ended up someplace that I knew.

Yet it somehow looked completely different! And even more oddly, I seemed to no longer be looking for anything.

Guess I just needed to move forward for a change. Instead of just in circles.
