After spending many hours, the good wife brainstorming with me, misplaced map comes closest and states concisely what I want from this blog. Spanish has a verb, extraviar, that captures the meaning of “misplaced in transit or travel.” That is what has happened to some of my memories, like a small pouch, they have been set down and then forgotten until miles down the road.
In the end there is the self-conflict. Do I retrace my steps to retrieve the map case or do I continue on without a detailed understanding of the territory? In the case of this web log it is returning to the location where the memories were left and reconnecting.
