Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

The Truth about Travel

I have lost the illusion that travel brings us closer to the truth
Teilhard de Chardin

I love to travel

To see new places 

And meet new people

I even love airports

And train stations

I love the newness

And the oldness

And the unexpected

I expect to  find those things when I travel

But what I do not expect to find
is the peace, and the comfort and the moments 
That can only be found 

by my own fireside
with my own thoughts
and my own books
and perhaps 

a friend or two
that is the truth
and that's poetiquejustis
Everyone will sit under their own vine and under their own fig tree,
 and no one will make them afraid, for the LORD Almighty has spoken.
Micah 4:4
