It's The Journey

You know the phrase, it's the journey, not the destination? To be honest, I've always thought that was a bunch of rot. Personally, I think it's the journey and the destination. I mean, if the destination isn't worth getting there, why go there? Go somewhere else. And yes, I know. The phrase is supposed to mean don't spend so much time focusing on the future that you don't notice what's right in front of you and blah, blah, blah. I still say it's both. But I'm a both kinda gal.

Until this week. This week, I'm pretending it's about the journey, all about the journey and nothing but the journey. We're back on the road tomorrow morning. Heading ... west.

The more Pobble Thoughts aware you are, the more likely it is that you noticed a post go missing earlier this week (and if you didn't, it's so not a big deal). That's because within an hour of my posting the latest plan, it changed. Over the next two days, it changed three more times. No exaggeration, no lie, no shit.

So, this week, we're heading...west. And that's all I need to worry about right now because it's about the journey, not the destination.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and buck fifty will get you coffee.

To quote somebody, the road leads ever on....

Enjoy the journey

I noticed the missing was there in my newsreader and gone from your blog in my Web browser...please don't do that... just update us!

And think of the phrase Paul Theroux used in "The Great Railway Bazaar," "travelling hopefully."

All the best, Mike

Ok now that explains a lot! My computer told me that your page had an update but when I clicked on hadn't changed. Sneaky sneaky.

Well not so sneaky just as plans change. : )

And maybe we'll get to see each other eventually. Who knows where my future is taking me at this time.

Keep repeating that Pobble. I'm sure it's tough even when it's interesting becuase it's moving so fast & furious. As always, travel well & send word when you reach the West.

AppsRus ~ It does indeed. I just wish it would lead closer to you. *sigh*

Mike ~ Sorry to have thrown you. All's well just...different. The plans changed, and changed drastically, 3 times in 2 days. "Traveling hopefully" works. Thanks. :)

Dreamer ~ Well, there's a vague statement on your part. Almost as vague as my missing post. ;) Drop a line. What's up?

Neo_Prodigy ~ Never predictable and never dull. Interesting times, indeed.

GOML! ~ Not sure how far west. Will let you know if it's 'far enough'. There are coffees with our names on them.

$$ ~ It's almost a mantra.
