Thursday of this week while reading from one of my favorite blogger's site, I came upon this quote from author, Phil Cousineau -
" If we truly want to know the secret of soulful travel, we need to believe that there is something sacred waiting to be discovered in virtually every journey. "
I made note of the thought and was prompted to write my own post about journey; I too have read Mr. Cousineau's book entitled "The Art of Pilgrimage," yet when approaching the subject I found the muse was content with what Lucy had to say about her upcoming travels and I decided to just, well to just - borrow/steal/piggy-back - yes, I seem to think piggy-back is the nicest term - so please, to legitimate my piggy-back, visit Lucy's site and read her thoughts of travel, noting only that coincidentally, if there is such a thing as coincidence, we are leaving on the same day for extended travel adventures. The difference being while she sits astride a stately camel in the midst of the dry, dry desert, I will be aboard a Holland America oceanliner visiting the South Pacific Ocean! The stories from both adventures, I'm hoping, will be entertaining, surprising and very worth sharing; I expect some of those tales will end up both at the MindSieve and at Lucy's favorite hangout.
I know that both of us have great expectations for the beauty and mystery of both the desert and the ocean. I'm confident neither of us will be disappointed. The departure date is not for a few more weeks but we are anticipating the journeys with great expectations so the subject may surface here OR there again before the final liftoff!
