Freedom

Freedom began on the day the first sheep wandered away from the herd.

  3. I don't think he got to far as they always went after him, as the story goes.
    ...The shepherd always leaves the flock to find the lost sheep. - I guess he didn't know he was actually running away.

  5. Whether it was a spur-of-the-moment wander or a long-desired daydream, that was one bold sheep.

  6. This aphorism pretty accurately describes my entire life's experience. I don't march to the beat of a different drummer; I am the drummer.

  9. That's interesting: I recognized myself in a sheep out of the herd, and dream about the herd to share my experience - view the herd as the fulfillment of my wandering because the freedom is in belonging, not in the loneleness
