To go, to see, to be where Iíve never
been, to experience the wide unknown,
to seek far beyond familiar harbor,
is ever a lifeís authentic touchstone.

Habitual everyday molts away
leaving nothing but wander wonderment,
where itís impossible to be blase
and effortless to be in the moment.

Stripped of routine, freed from fettered mooring,
the now open mind experiences life
with an infantís awed eye ever poring,
and lives in a fascination most rife.

Whether inner or outer no matter,
a journey stops a mindís mindless chatter.
