flow journals: reading back

We can’t know what will happen before the journey begins. We must go anyway.

Working on my memoir I keep coming across journal entries like this one, Entered the day before I left for the forty-day cross country drive that would change my life. 

Before we depart on any journey, even a trip to the grocery store, we can’t know what’s going to happen. All we can do is start driving. All we can do is show up and be with what’s here.
