Journeys... Sometimes long sometimes short, some are dangerous and some are joyful. We try and make some choices on the way. After it is all said and done, some question their choices "am I on the wrong track?”, "Does it have a meaning?” Some say "no wind is useful for a ship without a route.” Perhaps they are right, I don’t know. Sometimes we hit the road, a junction comes and some of our friends depart. We bid our farewells and move on. ...
