To meander

Sometimes 'meander' is taken to mean wandering aimessly, lost and with no purpose. A sad interpretation, I've always thought. A more positive explanation is that of taking a winding course through life, being aware of all that we see on the way and taking the time to notice. What could we miss if in a rush to travel a straight line from one point to another? We'll never know unless we slow down.

Hi Erica
I love this statement. Is it your quote, or did you find it somewhere? Would you mind if I borrow it, I think it is so wise?
Kind regards
Karen

Hi Karen,
Yes, they are my words and you are welcome to use them. The challenge, I find, is to have enough unstructured time in my life!
