“I took a long time getting here, much of it wasted on wrong turns, back roads riddled by ruts. I had adventures I never would have known if I proceeded as the crow flies. Super highways are so sure of where they are going: they arrive too soon.
A straight line isn't always the shortest distance between two people. Sometimes I act as though I'm heading somewhere else while, imperceptibly, I narrow the gap between you and me. I'm not sure I'll ever know the right way, but I don't mind getting lost now and then. Maps don't know everything.”
