Roads and Paths

Inspired by a recent post from Minnesota Prairie by Audrey Kletscher Helbling, author and photographer extraordinaire on traveling the interstate highway systems.  Thanks Audrey for the motivation! Give her blog a visit you’ll enjoy her down home American Midwestern slant on life in general, I know that I like her take on a lot of things that usually give me a different perspective than my Northeastern background provides.


“Roads and Paths“

Each and every road or path
has its beginning and its end
and all that it comes down to
is how much you’ll have to spend.
For be it time or love or money
or the mere beauty of the sight
be it the summer’s warmth in daytime
or perhaps a family’s Christmas night.
Yes, each and every road or path
has its start and has its finish
but let that not, your journeys cease
and nor the lust for them diminish!
