Get Lost

I don't mean "scram." I mean, following up on the idea of "trying something new every day," wander off the beaten path, and maybe even get lost.

I often head out into the city where I live (and last week, in a totally strange city), and wander until I need directions to get home.

In that strange city (Jinan, Shandong), I found myself in an old Muslim quarter, passing a woman in full burqa, several ancient Chinese-style mosques, and a Pakistani restaurant (a real treat after eating "Buddhist food" for three days). The restaurant's owner was a great guy, a doctor doing graduate work, and we had a fascinating conversation.

You never know what you'll see, or who you'll meet, or where you'll end up. That's the fun of it!

So get lost.

You'll be happier.
