I believe we often forgo chance and hinder meaning as we drive around in our cars, always in a rush. We overlook experiences and abandon outlets when we do not walk. Soren Kierkegaard wrote, "In order to bear mental tension such as mine, I need diversion, the diversion of chance contacts on the streets and alleys because association with a few individuals is actually no diversion. It is the accidental and insignificant things in life which are significant."
I love that I can roam, wander, and choose to pursue a certain course. I love the option of chance, the unplanned and the unforeseen.
I cannot wait for my next walk.
