Our routine schedules create efficiencies - they enable us to do things in the quickest and shortest way. That is the diametric opposite from following a hunch, taken a different route, doing something which conflicts entirely with shovelling as much and as many junk actions as possible into every minute - giving your life over to things that don't really count.
STOP. PAUSE. Even on a routine day, the smallest errant gesture may lead you on an adventure... The tiniest divergence from your standard norm may bring you sunshine... or bring you deep insight in shades of darkness and light.
No growth comes from regurgitation. No growth ever came from rehashing the same things over and over. DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. Take a tour... For this cabbie, it was a gift and privilege to allow himself to be entranced by the sound of the closing of a life.
