The stories of my life on a little island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea ... and my occasional adventures beyond these shores.

The Journey

Life’s a journey, not a destination (from the ballad “Amazing” by Aerosmith).
And I couldn’t agree more except that our life it a series of journeys, with stops and starts, ups and downs.
With straight paths. USA 698
And bends in the road.
USA 724
With diversions.
USA 723
And with paths which intersect those of others.
USA 725
Life is a journey into a mystery – an adventure that unfolds slowly every single day.
USA 722   
This post was inspired by the train tracks at the Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Train Museum,

  8. it's weird. i'm reading paul theroux's The Great Railway Bazaar. I saw your pictures and got immediately reminded of his train adventures. the book's opening line goes like this:

    "Ever since childhood, when I lived within earshot of the Boston and Maine, I have seldom heard a train go by and not wished I was on it."
