We can travel far or short distances, going up and down hills or staying on a pretty flat plain. We get lost sometimes on detours, but we find our way back on some sort of path. It can easily last a minute or stretch into a lifetime, depending on the gas we are willing to put in. We can never predict exactly when it will be over, but you enjoy the ride and remember... Although it will eventually end, it wasn't about the destination in the first place.
