When lonely days turn to lonely nights
You take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home -Supertramp “Take The Long Way Home”
“Hard choices, easy life. Easy choices, hard life.” -Jerzy Gregorek
“Sometimes it’s necessary to go a long distance out of the way in order to come back a short distance correctly.” -Edward Albee, The Zoo Story
We all want it to be easy. And trying to find the most efficient and least taxing way to accomplish something makes perfect tense.
But there are times when harder makes it easier.
When going slow makes it faster.
And taking the long way ends up being the right way.
