It was with some shock this morning that I realized slowly and imperceptibly I’ve drifted off course and I’ve ended up in a place I never thought I would be. The way back will be difficult laden with old and new perils. I thought of myself as a plane, if it flies just one degree off its assigned flight plan it can end up hundreds of kilometres from its destination. And if it’s out of fuel, it’s only going one place – down. The realization I’m a few degrees out warrants a complete and regular check up on myself and some inflight adjustments.
