The Literary Drover No. 1375

A note made while researching FOR UNTO US:

“More often than not geography alters a destiny, and determines the destination. If we go where we intended the prejudice of expectation results in disappointment, but if we are required to vary the path predetermined because of an unexpected encounter with a rushing river, a slick ice field, an impassable formation, the outcome, without the burden of expectation, devoid of prejudice, becomes a thing of joy and wonder.”
