“Throw out all your maps. Burn them.”

Another short story read that is worth your while.

Nothing quite turns out in our lives. But that’s what gets me: there might still be a very few remote places in the world—deepest Mongolia, maybe—where a person comes to live exactly the life expected, exactly as offered. I didn’t. None of my students has. Wes, child of his times already, doesn’t even have a shot at it. And yet somehow it thrills me—and maybe Wes as well—to know that such a thing remains imaginable.
