That the world is a big place cannot be doubted. That the
world is also small can be wondered at but is also true.
Someone, taking that first step might set out on a journey
that will take him many miles here & there, this way &
that way. Someone else, quite happy to be ensconced
at home might journey only in his imagination & still
be the explorer & adventurer, going eagerly, easily &
freely from one place to another.
There is also the other kind of traveler, the one that flees,
the refugee, the alien.
There are various ways of looking at this world. In
the process one can't help asking oneself, "Who am I?
What am I doing here? Where am I going?"
