Taking inspiration from inspiration.

I should take inspiration from my mother, who, like me, often got lost. But she never yelled SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT, at least not in my hearing. Instead, a wicked grin on her face, she yelled WE’RE HAVING AN ADVENTURE, KIDS, and my sister and I were credulous enough, and young enough, and enough in awe of her ability to wend through life without crashing, to believe her. She never cared when she lost her way, because she always had faith she’d find another one.
