Ritual, sequence, order - the train tracks. You need to get on the train and ride down those rails - to get you out, beyond the city, into the wilderness. But then the thing you have come for - and you may just realize you came for it when you see it - may involve getting off the train, getting off the tracks, jumping down and venturing into unknown territory - weeds and high grass, tiger territory - to retrieve the wild flower, or to witness the dying deer more closely - or to kill the deer or to leave the flower. Or to have an encounter with the tiger.
