“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveller is unaware.” Martin Buber
I walk to the kitchen, planning to put the kettle on, but as I pass my purse, I remember that I meant to write myself a note, so phone in hand, I return to the couch and type up the memo. Satisfied with that task completed I pick up my laptop and resume writing, reaching for a sip of tea.
Tea! Darn! I’d forgotten to put on the kettle. I curse at myself as this has been happening regularly lately. I set out with one goal in mind and get waylaid.
How often is this a metaphor for life?
We set out this year with the full intention of wintering in Arizona. The only reason we stopped in Texas was to meet up with friends. Now, Texas has become our winter home.
This week, let’s ponder destination – the intended and unintentional, the possibilities, and the journeys along the way.
Look forward to your responses.
