A good friend of ours has offered to send me a "writing prompt" every morning in order to jiggle the brain cells and see what happens. The first day she sent "Did you ever get lost?". This conjured up quite a few memories but the writing exercise finally led me to the following:
Lost - that's what keeps adventurers going - the possibility of getting lost. When every day unfolds in predictable monotony you are depriving yourself of discoveries. There is more to living than walking a treadmill from birth to death. Step off! Get lost! Allow adrenaline to flow, inhale the scent of uncertainty. Turn left instead of right. You'll find your way to places you never imagined.
Thank you Arlene
That's what happened this morning when I discovered alleys and streets
that had been waiting for an appreciative eye.
