Its good to be lost !

Every curve you take on this road, you expect to meet someone familiar, only to be frowned upon by a yellow frog or greeted by the curious stare of a hornbill.

Trust me, you will never meet anyone from your neighbourhood or your work place on this road. You will never have to stop to make small talk, unless you want to do that to a wild orchid or a hopping rabbit.

I scan the skyline on my horizon. There ! I see a majestic animal, grazing the vast grasslands.

Three days with no TV, no Internet, no mobiles, no newspaper,no..well the only luxury you have here is unbelievably tasty food, which the local chef churns out and the soothing greenery all around you.

Its good to be lost once in a while.

What is life?

It is the flash of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.
It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
~ A Native American Indian's words
