    I lost my way in the spaghetti junction of highway roadworks into which Melbourne's M2 currently devolves and found myself heading away from my destination, towards Footscray. The family car was so full of belongings - garden tools, blankets, artworks deemed too sentimentally precious to leave to the removalists- that I couldn't use the rear-view mirror. I doubled back, then tripled back, in an effort to recover the route. Eventually I abandoned the blue dot on Google Maps, always a crucial few hundred metres out when it comes to junction exits, and drove by a more Zen method: swapping to a compass app and heading due south, feeling my way to Port Melbourne and the ferry terminal.' (Geordie Williamson, Editorial introduction)
