It's like looking at the big picture through a camera lens and patiently waiting for it to focus. It's recalling all of the little things and putting them together: the turning points, the snap decisions, the unforeseen consequences, the mysterious health issues, the faithful explorations. I need to be able to put my finger on a map and trace the direct routes, the twists and turns, all of the steps taken. My biggest fear is losing the ability to do that. Losing the desire to do so comes in at a close second. I've reached a place--challenging my perceptions.
