Should I Carry a Compass?
“And this is what I have learned – that no matter where I go in life, I’ll always end up there.”
Some words of wisdom are simply too profound, too simple, state the obvious or just plain go over my head.
I actually paused when I read this line - paraphrased slightly to protect the book which I enjoyed. I thought I’d hit upon an Oprah or Dr. Phil moment. Neither of whom I watch. (Cross my heart - true as true.)
I’m thinking there are far too many of these “kumbayah,” guide-me-on-the-right-path utterances these days.
“Hey, I made it – I finally got here!”
Where else was I going to end up? Over there?
Yes, I’m somewhat of a cynic and I stumble a bit on that path to here, there and everywhere…but I’m pretty good with precise directions.
