The Long Road


At times it is not so much the milestones but the length of the journey that brings meaning to traveling.

I often like the journey rather than the destination

or perhaps, the 'being' in the journey, no matter how long or short it be?:)

I agree with backpakker. But if you grow weary of the long road, there's always the saying: Two shorten the road. Having a companion is sometimes wonderful.

Kenju: Hmmm. The long and winding road that never ends but goes on and on. It runs because it can't stop :)

Backpakker: Same here.

Dharmabum: Very much so. The anticipation, the beginning of a journey.

D. Chedwick: Of a road that does not weary a traveler, so much so the traveler wishes it could go on and on whatever the traveler's reason may be.

Anil, you say so much with so few words and the perfect image. That could almost be the American midwest.

Anil P said...

Princess Stefania: Thank you :)

Dawn: That's great news. All the best with your book. I checked your blog entry on that one.

Churningthewordmill: :)

Sarah Laurence: Thank you for your kind comment. Somehow it reminds me of a painting by Andrew Wyeth, not all of it though. I've never been to the American Midwest, must make for a pretty sight though.
