I Think Most Deeply When I Travel

I think most deeply when I travel.

The deeper I slip the greater my sight of the road upon which I travel is abandonded.

Continuing without question as to where this road may lead. I arrive somewhere often unintended.

I do not know whether I am being pulled to where I am going or pushed away from where I have been.

When I awaken from my thoughts I often must will a new course, not a course that backtracks but a course that pivots.

Music is the great multiplier for traveling: pinning, freeing, a compass, a blindfold. With music I become buoyant so that no wave or monster in this ocean can sink me forever. Without music my thoughts would surely have taken me somewhere irrevocable.\
