Journey and the Road Ahead

Our Journey Together
Do we take the road less travelled
The fork in the road that's only graveled
Or do we take the super highways
Ignoring those intriguing secret byways
We'll take the wiggly road that's off the map
Rather than drive through life just taking a nap.

Please do drop by my 2011 Photo Project blog:


  1. The wiggly road is the better one to be sure. Way more interesting.

  2. lovely wonders.
    I wondered the same,
    you speak to me and for me..
