Musing over TravelWithIntent‘s quote & post for a good part of the week:
“People don’t take trips… trips take people.” John Steinbeck Travels with Charley: In Search of America
and now contemplating NesFelicioPhotography’s post as I finish my morning tea:
“But it isn’t easy,’ said Pooh. ‘Because Poetry and Hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is to go where they can find you.” from AA Milne’s The House at Pooh Corner
I worked to reestablish my WordPress routines: it was a tentative & arduous in the beginning but got easier as the month progressed. It is good to be back.
