There is a certain sense of satisfaction that comes from plotting a course and arriving at a predetermined destination. There is an even greater satisfaction that comes from successfully returning again. Sometimes we long to travel and see new things and other times we long only to return to the things and people we know.
When you get old some of those instinctive navigation and people skills seem to fade at times. Perhaps stiff joints make for stiff minds. I use a little padlock for my motorcycle helmet every day and over time it kept getting more and more difficult to open and close. It finally dawned on me to put a single drop of motor oil on the lock and it was magically restored to its youthful function. If only that worked as well for people. It’s what we all dream of… A magic pill to set things right.
