7 May


I woke this morning determined
to experience the day in
a different way.  Today I will
wander.  No plan.  No compass.
Completely at the call of

I will be a determined deviant
ignoring imposed expectations,
presumptions, and roadmaps
drawn by those with calculated

I will taste, smell, and hear
without analysis or dissection.
I will appreciate at least
fourteen things, learn something
new, and pay attention to all
that appears improbable.

By sunset I will have been
grateful for something
insignificant, and aware of
an impossible possibility.
I will be free of all lists,
schedules, and calendars.

Perhaps I should print all this
as a guide to the freedom
offered by simple wandering.
