What a difference a letter can make. Replace an "o" with an "a" and I'm moved from the land of imagination and thought to a vast world of mazes and the amazing in which my wandering mind's attention is pulled hither and yonder. And wander it does. And sometimes it seems completely on its own without any conscious choice by me. To be accurate, my mind not only wanders, but it meanders.
It is like daydreaming as it flits and flies to and from each blossoming idea that catches its attention. It seems to be the nature of the beast to just go its own way, pulling me along. Wandering all the way.
This is mind, it is kind of like being set adrift in uncharted waters. Or maybe better described, it is like going on a casual stroll and finding yourself in uncharted territory. Like Dr Suess wrote:
“You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!”
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!
So between wondering and wandering, I have been mentally very occupied. I wonder then I wander. I let my mind just go free. I always hope it will come back. Usually, it does.
