There is a road, no simple highway,
        Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go, no one may follow,
        That path is for your steps alone ...
— The Grateful Dead, 'Ripple', 1970

Getting Here from There

As a young man I felt that something was missing in my life and that my future happiness depended on finding it.

I did not know what it looked like, where it was located, or how to search for it, but I was certain of one thing — I knew I would not find it where I was.

I set out with no clear picture of process or destination, but secure in the belief that, whatever happened, I would find more through being in motion than standing still.
