I see an island and I want to go.
I jump into a row-boat with one oar and no map.
The island is farther away than I expected.
I become discouraged.
I see a closer island so I row toward it.
I meet a consultant.
I pay almost all that I have to the consultant who convinces me I wanted to go to the wrong island.
The consultant sells me a map and a blueprint to go to his island.
I now need a motor and a better boat.
I get a loan and purchase the better boat and the motor and head to the consultant’s island.
The blue print is helpful, but I’m not that excited.
On the way I see a sparkling island and it looks much more appealing.
I motor towards it.
I have lost the map the consultant gave me.
The fog rolls in.
Now I’m confused about what I really want.
I’m mad at the consultant.
The motor is acting up.
I row to the closest island.
My needs are met.
There is coconut milk and a native there needs my services.
It’s better than nothing.
I am bored and know there must be more.
I still want my original island.
This time I’m smarter.
I take TWO oars and a map.
I’ll geet the motor fixed eventually.
I’m back in the gap.
