Quote of the Week: An Awfully Big Adventure

Perhaps this was meant to be my adventure, though I had not known it at the outset. The whole point of adventure is that it is unplanned; a leap in the dark, verging on the unfortunate, offering glimpses of danger; and what separates adventure from disaster is that you live to tell the tale.

 - Paul Theroux, "My Drug Tour: Searching for Ayahuasca," in Figures in a Landscape, p.11
