With great effort, our persistent friend Jeff rouses us from lethargy with the suggestion of a trip away from the campground. We plod to our dusty cars and agree to follow him to an ice cream parlor in the next county. None of us knows where it is, but Jeff assures us that he will lead us there.
Our little caravan winds through the back roads of rural Michigan. Following Jeff’s lead, we turn down roads that none of us knew existed. We screech around corners when he turns suddenly without benefit of turn signals. We watch unfamiliar scenery fly by, uncertain that we’ll ever reach our destination.
Fifty minutes later, Jeff leads us into the parking lot of the ice cream parlor. Although we have not ordered yet, we are laughing, curiously refreshed and energized by the wild ride. Our leader has taken us in unexpected ways to an unfamiliar place. We rarely took the safe or unexpected path, but there was true refreshment and rest at the destination.
