Prompt:

A couple of my friends are changing everything in their lives, one described the approach as tossing up everything they knew and seeing where it all lands. What would you toss up? And isn’t that the essence of a good journey – based story – the hero tosses up everything in his life and acts, or reacts to where all the pieces land.
