The most direct route to peace? A walk in the woods, taking the long way back!
The best way to find out things, if you come to think of it, is not to ask questions at all. If you fire off a question, it is like firing off a gun; bang it goes and everything takes flight and runs for shelter. But if you sit still and pretend not to be looking, all the little facts will come and peck around your feet, situations will venture forth from thickets and intentions will creep out and sun themselves on a stone.
