Our work is to unleash our sense of adventure
and to allow the inner whisper that says
“come hither” to be reason enough to go.”

STARING AT EMPTY PAGES

 

This was in September 1970…

thinking back to those more innocent times…
and now today it is all so much more distant,
so very far away and yet still so very near…
