Sunday - Saying Yes to the World

What does it take to make a journey? A place to start from, something to leave behind. A road, a trail, or a river. Companions, and something like a destination: a camp, an inn, or another shore. We might imagine a journey with no destination, nothing but the act of going, and with never an arrival. But I think we would always hope to find something or someone, however unexpected and unprepared for. Seen from a distance or taken part in, all journeys may be the same, and we arrive exactly where we are. . . .  There is the dream journey and the actual life.
John Haines, from Moments and Journeys

I love the picture
and the words.
You will never know
how the words you share
and pictures
inspire me..
