On my way to grandmother this morning, I was struck by a peculiar light coming from between the trees. I could have sworn I heard music too. So I set off to investigate. I must have walked further than I realized, as I was mesmerized by the strange occurrence. Suddenly, when I looked back, I could not see the path anymore. No panic. I quickly searched my pockets for the map I usually carry -an ugly thing, but very efficient nonetheless. But my pockets were gone! Then I remembered that I had decided not to wear my coat since it was a lovely day. No coat, no pockets, no map.
Luckily I have a good sense of direction and found my way back without too much trouble. The thought of losing my way in that dreary forest sends shivers down my spine.
I'm still wondering what that strange light was, though. But it's really not worth getting lost over.
