Writing 101’s assignment for Day 17 suggests us using a map for a muse.
I WANT OUT OF LABELS. I DON’T WANT MY WHOLE LIFE CRAMMED INTO A SINGLE WORD, OR STORY. I WANT TO FIND SOMETHING ELSE, UNKNOWABLE, SOME PLACE TO BE THAT’S NOT ON THE MAP. A REAL ADVENTURE. A MYSTERY. A BLANK. UNKNOWN. UNDEFINED”(Chuck Palahniuk) I just love this quote. I use it on my about me page as a sort of introductory.
At this stage of my life, I don’t want to follow any map.
Detours have ways of popping up. I’ve found that that interruption in my journey usually happens for a reason, even if said reason hasn’t surfaced yet…detours can turn out to be good for the soul!
So, what would my so-called map look like?!?!?
I like this example…….each route is a song. I’ll just belt out my tunes, enjoy the scenery and see where I end up.
Turn on the radio (plug in my ITunes).
I start at Point A
With no Point B in sight.
My heart drives me,
Inner Peace my passenger.
