While studying for his PhD in physics, Uri Alon thought he was a failure because all his research paths led to dead ends. But, with the help of improv theater, he came to realize that there could be joy in getting lost. A call for scientists to stop thinking of research as a direct line from question to answer, but as something more creative. It's a message that will resonate, no matter what your field. 

Not all those who wander are lost.

LOL!  Perhaps I've experienced that myself.

I think we all have at one time or another, Tina!
