The road less traveled

Today I took a new route to a familiar destination, without using a GPS.

  • Did I take the fastest route? Probably not.
  • Did I use my intrinsic sense of navigation for the first time in a decade? I’d say so.
  • Did I view, for the first time, a previously unknown part of a local neighborhood? Yes.

Funny how GPS has turned the road trip into a video game, following a guided path on a screen to a destination (and if you’re like me you try to beat the time by arriving at the destination sooner than predicted).

Your brain knows the way. Look up and enjoy the trip.
