There’s the idea of bumping into experience and people while you’re wandering.

There’s the idea of bumping into experience and people while you’re wandering. You really are experiencing life that way. Nothing is routine, nothing is taken for granted. Everything is standing out on it’s own, because everything is a possibility, everything is a clue, everything is talking to you. It’s marvelous. It’s as though you had a nose that brought you into the right places. You are in wonderful moments when you travel like that-for example, my putting up my hand in the Carmel library and finding a book that became a destiny book. It really did! That rambling is a chance to stiff things out and somehow get a sense of where you feel you can settle.

-- Joseph Campbell
