about this story

Enough already with the hours and hours of looking at windows of people in boxes on a screen. I feel like I have been in a box for years now, is this all we can do?

Each time I hit this wall of futility, the futility mounts because I never break down the wall, see through it or really bounce off. I was looking for something, and tried a different path offered at work.

Yet their PD was just a different kind of wall to hit, canned careless videos and tired worksheets, now the wall was a nest of thorns.

Different wall.

Same result.

Alas, a note flittered by and landed on my shoulder.

"Look down" it read.

What? Who is playing games with me? I glance around to see if anyone can see my state of confusion.

It was an odd ship, the kind I only saw in science fiction movies. But this was real. On inspection I saw a QR code. It was covered in dirt and poor resolution, but finally my phone app made a recognition. A link. A virtual space ship that landed me at

And now, I am on a real open trail, and not only with good conditions, but true co-operators, and we are free of those boxes.

Get on the trail!
