The serendipity of setting out

Sometimes you just have to set out in the direction of a vague yearning. This wouldn’t make sense for going to the moon. Or separating conjoined twins. 

But for many other things — love, art, friendship, a dream — things that matter greatly — setting out with little more than a hazy notion is the greatest step you can take.

That first tentative gambit is the courageous one. Each move after that requires a little less audacity. A little less moxie.

(Then comes that inflection point . . . when you are pulled forward with such force it feels like destiny.)
