reverb 11: a short letter to myself


perhaps he knew,
as i did not,
that the earth was made round
so that we would not see too far down the  road.
                                                
                                                                         ~ isak dinesen / out of africa


limited visibility be damned.  all those green lights say go.
pedal to the metal onward through the fog and all that jazz.

write a letter to your future self to read on dec 30, 2012:

go.
you have a compass called your heart.
stop only for tuneups and fuel and photo opportunities.
screw the map.  you are making your own.

                                                    xoxo

  4. I like making my own map, even if I have to travel through the fog. I know there will be light at the other end.
