....But I'm going to let Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat, Pray, Love" say it for me...
“When you're lost in those woods, it sometimes takes you a while to
realize that you are lost. For the longest time, you can convince
yourself that you've just wandered off the path, that you'll find your
way back to the trailhead any moment now. Then night falls again and
again, and you still have no idea where you are, and it's time to admit
that you have bewildered yourself so far off the path that you don't
even know from which direction the sun rises anymore.”
