The Journey

~*The Journey*~

2018-2553-Little Egypt USGS Site and Goblins (15) Wanderlust

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice–
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.

“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried

with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.

It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do–
determined to save
the only life you could save.

Won’t you join my on my journey?

Perhaps you would enjoy joining me on my travels during the winter of 2018/2019 on my YouTube Channel. The series begins around the middle of October 2018, and ends in early May, 2019. There are 53 Episodes that cover this six-month time period. The series is called ‘The Travels & Adventures of a Solo Female Nomad, Year 14’ here is the link:

These images are just a teensy weensy little taste of some of the places I visited. The picture above that looks like a sunset or sunrise, is actually a supermoon setting AT sunrise. It is ready to vanish behind those mountains as the sun is rising behind the camera. Think about that for a second…

Below are a few more pictures to wet your appetite:
