cartography is a word which, in the last two days, has come to mean more to me than it did before.
before yesterday, it meant the creation and technique of making maps. literally, creating maps–figuratively, finding paths, finding ways, finding a compass rose that could truly point to where you need to go.
today, it means so much more. it means new beginnings, and finding ways of adjusting the maps that got me this far. it means finding a new path for me to take. just me. and maybe for now that means making my own maps. exercising my ability to find my way, and my ability to track my progress on new metrics, new maps.
it’s time for me to make my own path.
