The Search for the White Squirrel (or 3 Reasons to Have an Unsuccessful Adventure.)

Walking and hiking are examples of focal practices: activities that balance, center, focus, and orient one’s life. They don’t require a goal, like finding a white squirrel, in order to be beneficial. They don’t require that type of goal to be “focal” either, which is, in fact, why it is just fine that we didn’t happen upon one.
