I really have to figure out how to recalibrate my GPS because it doesn’t seem to be getting me anywhere, and this has absolutely nothing to do with navigation. I use my GPS whenever I am protecting myself from disappointment or dashed hopes or discomfort of any kind–and I’m good at using it… and maybe even better at being used by it.

As soon as my sensor senses or anticipates sensing something potentially difficult to confront, something toxic or hazardous, or dangerous, or risky–a protective wall instantly goes up, and suddenly i have distance. And distance can be a good thing, if used with precision. but it probably has as much precision as a smart bomb.

the big problem with the wall is that it’s not very selective or discriminating in how it protects, what/who it is protecting or what/who it is protecting against. once that wall is up, nothing gets in and nothing gets out.

I don’t know how I came to be this way. I’ve wondered whether this might be considered as a syndrome  of some kind. a Generalized Protection Syndrome. a GPS.

Actually, now that I think about it, this GPS can only be calibrated and recalibrated to a very limited extent. At a certain point, it must be dismantled.

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
