“Everything becomes more meaningful to him who watches and listens without too much thought to the value of his time.” – Harold Gatty, Finding Your Way Without Map or Compass

Wilderness State Park offered the opportunity to explore the beyond and to get lost in that exploration. Getting lost is more than a physical circumstance, it is a state of mind, a gateway to discovery. I set out daily in different directions—East, South, West and North—meditating on mantras to invoke the different directional signs and elements and lost myself in subtle nuances of the natural world.

It was when I became lost that I knew I had arrived.
