"Maiden Voyage" by Hunter Madsen

"Maiden Voyage"

A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.  -  Lao Tzu

The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat. 

        - From Derek Walcott, "Love After Love"

...I prefer to knock on wood.
I prefer not to ask how much longer and when.
I prefer keeping in mind even the possibility
that existence has its own reason for being.

       - From Wislawa Szymborska, "Possibilities"
