I had to share this wonderful paragraph from WOLF HALL by Hilary Mantel
"In the forest you may find yourself lost, without companions. You may come to a river which is not on the map. You may lose sight of your quarry, and forget why you are there. You may meet a dwarf, or the living Christ, or an old enemy of yours; or a new enemy, one you do not know until you see his face appear between the rustling leaves, and see the glint of his dagger. You may find a woman asleep in a bower of leaves. For a moment, before you don't recognise her, you will think she is someone you know"
