I was not born for one corner; the whole world is my native land.

Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do
than by the ones you did do. 
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.

-Mark Twain

What is that feeling when you're driving away from people, and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it's the too huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye.  But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.

Jack Kerouac

I have recently discovered the word wanderlust.

I feel that it encompasses everything and anything I ever seem to feel.

Wanderlust means a strong desire, or an impulse, to wander or travel and explore the world.  It is a desire to understand one's very existence.

Everytime I see the word it reminds me of my desires, and it helps me strive towards them.

Keep your heart open, your head high, and your spirit free.

I have that desire for change.
But I am a creature of habit.
I have no idea how this contradiction is able to be so present in my life, yet there you have it.


I was just finishing up some assignments in the guestroom upstairs when a line from William Wordsworth's Lucy came to mind.  I actually didn't know that it was from Lucy, or even that it was written by Wordsworth - I had to google it.  Strange how things sometimes come to mind, isn't it?

The line (or lines, I suppose): "And all the while my eyes I kept / On the descending moon".

I suppose ENG 202 had a lasting effect on me after all!
