I like to take road trips. Sometimes as I’m driving down the road I think of how little effort it takes to change a lane. First, I see a car ahead that I am gaining on. Then with little perceived motion I change lanes. Sometimes it seems little more than a thought that moves the car into the other lane. Now, if that road splits and I stay in the other lane I could end up in a different destination than the other lane would take me.
That’s what I thought of when Sister Cordon talks about ‘leaning.’ A gesture that makes us off balance or off center. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to end up in a different lane that could take us somewhere we didn’t plan going.
