  • Sometimes when I see a certain object, hear a word, or embodiment of an idea I get a feeling that it was put there just for me. A prop. Something planted in my scenario. An arrow.

    I imagine that following these leads will take me exactly where I need to go. It is a game in a way, and maybe also a tool for survival.

    So I will read the book, and go to the place, listen to the words and heed their advice.

    I will apply what I stumble upon and be quietly grateful for the guidance.
