“In my wildest dreams
I journey to the river sea,
where adventure awaits and
the path becomes blurred.
Those who wander a thousand miles do so because
they are no longer afraid of becoming lost
in direction, and in themselves.
I am sure that what I encounter along the way
will be as beautiful as the stars on a clear night,
or a water-lillied dragonfly pool.
Rather than the destination,
it is the journey that matters,
in the end.
but journey not with contempt.”
