A missive.← Back
Looking back with clear eyes and an open mind across the scattered landmarks that delineate my journey through the landscape of time, I can see how I got where I am today. I see the choices and mistakes and small victories and pleasant surprises that dot the terrain. I see where I was headed... and know that it's not now where I am going. I see where I wanted to go. But I cannot look upon these stone cairns of achievement with remorse. This is my road. Looking forward, I see not where I am going, but only where I am, and where I aim. I know too that at the next mile marker, I will again find myself strayed from my objective, again beset by monsters of the sea, again bolstered by strong tradewinds and again in an unfamiliar, undiscovered port.
