Life and Traveling


Traveling can be fun right? But what does it mean to travel?
Does it mean that your mind is gone or is it your body?

When you think about traveling, you think oh I can go some where and have fun. Do people travel to get away from others or do they travel to get away from themselves?

Do people really mean that they want thier body or thier mind to travel?
I guess it just depends on the place and time and whom you are with...

    Love the notion of 'traveling' as a mental/emotional, as well as a physical, activity. We can travel in our minds and in our hearts. And, as the poet (Kristen) states, we can travel to get away from ourselves as well as to get away from, or to get closer to, others.....A perfect 10. Keep on writing, Kristen! ! ! (Report) Reply
