Music Theme: ALL THINGS TRAVEL

TO ME, TRAVEL DOES NOT MEAN MERELY STARTING ONE PLACE AND ENDING UP AT ANOTHER.

TRAVEL IS ONE’S INVOLVEMENT WITH  THE JOURNEY ITSELF.

MICHAEL —  In the days when I was able to travel and did travel I found EVERYWHERE beautiful and intriguing.  I wanted to stay and live EVERYWHERE.  The options for alternate lives are infinite.   This reblog from  Michael Lai is and example :      https://bearspawprint.wordpress.com/2013/10/14/an-abandoned-house/     On his blog are many other photos collected from his travels.  http://retireediary.wordpress.com/
