Before we had cellphones, my older sister needed a way to find me. She thought we needed a meeting point in case I got lost. It needed to be obvious. It needed to be somewhere that even I could find.
My parents are diplomats, a job that has moved our family to 10 different countries. At the time, we were living in Kuala Lumpur. My sister told me if we ever got separated, to meet her at a Kinokuniya bookstore in the mall underneath the city’s emblematic Petronas Towers. It was the perfect pick: the glimmering towers were visible from all corners of the city, making them easy for me to spot.
She didn’t really have a choice. My lack of direction was obvious and I had a tendency to wander away from the group. I’d like to say I’ve grown out of it, but I haven’t. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing.
Two months ago, while walking through the old market in Sharm el Sheikh by myself, I tried to just embrace it. I had no plan, no internet, and no direction whatsoever. I wandered into a textile shop and saw elaborate designs that reminded me of Lahore. I wandered into a hidden tea market and bought two bags of tea that smelled like mangoes for my sister. I wandered into a tiny local skin care shop, where I had a two-hour conversation with the salesman and bought the best rose face mask I’ve ever used. It doesn’t even have a name.
During a recent trip to South Africa, my friend Natasha Khan found herself off track while hiking a trail near Cape Town. She got separated from her group as she stopped to take photos of the various flora and fauna. Hurrying to find them, she went the wrong way and ended up on a main road, which just happened to be near an African penguin sanctuary.
“There was a man sitting on the side of the road,” she said, “with the biggest, cheesiest smile plastered on his face.”
His smile caught her eye, so she walked over. He was surrounded by small tin cups and plates, on which he had hand-painted penguins. They talked for awhile and she bought some cups for herself and her friends. Now she keeps them on her shelf to remind her of that moment. That little diversion turned out to be one of the best memories she has from the trip.
It’s increasingly difficult to really be lost. Google Maps, Yelp and a seemingly endless number of other apps are always waiting in our pockets to help us find our way. But maybe that convenience has a cost. Sure, it’s nice to discover the best restaurant nearby and have your phone guide you there, but I have a feeling we’re losing something. What are we missing when we only see what we want to see?
These days, I’m trying to embrace and create detours. Sometimes I get off the train at random stops, or I walk a different way home. For me, feeling lost is part of the journey.
How to Make a Millennial Feel Cozy in Just One Beverage CBD? Check. Bubbles? Check. Ironic fonts? Check. The aggressive marketing of commodified wellness? Oh yes.
Apple’s Biggest Problem? My Mom The most consequential hit to the bottom line may be from people, including longtime fans, who are holding on to their phones longer.
What to Do When You Think You’re About to Get Fired Whether you’re worried about getting the boot or getting a pink slip, here are some tips to protect yourself before the ax falls.
How to Hold Healthy Grudges Grudges can be good. They are one habit that humans have evolved to keep ourselves from the pain of breakups and also from eating mozzarella sticks for every meal.
There Is a Free Lunch, After All. It’s at the Office. What was once an extra is now a necessity, as companies give their employees free ice cream and beer, Pop-Tarts and prime rib — often with an agenda attached.
How ‘Chappelle’s Show’ and ‘The Boondocks’ Kept Us Laughing at R. Kelly In the early 2000s, it was easier to mock the singer than wrestle with his alleged crimes. The documentary “Surviving R. Kelly” makes that difficult now.
