Art of the Travel Journal

One last peek..
gentle reader, 
before I close this book...

and set it on the shelf to snuggle 
with the other 
travel journals in my office  ..

So many things 
about this trip were unusual..

like the butterfly pavilion 
on Harvest Caye..
and knowing my fondness for them

it made the trip so memorable..

and tiny sea shells,
my love of all things, tiny
 was fulfilled..

we  visited ports of call
that were unknown to us

and shared foods that were different from anything we have

it is a most wonderful experience 
to be a seasoned traveler and yet feel
the thrill of parts unknown..

and to fill in the blanks that you
did not know existed...

"The best journeys answer questions that in the beginning you didn't even think to ask"

Jeff Johnson

The only thing we can do is 
answer when the sea calls..
when wanderlust
and our feet itch..

I say..

Ciao, Ciao!

Another journal treasure Cat. Can you imagine 50 years from now someone opening a dusty box and finding this or another of your beautiful journals? The thrill of discovery and the romance of your art wrapped up together!

A most beautiful post dear Cat,- the pages in your book are stunning, oh love the butterfly and the sea star in frame - love them all,- and admire your big appetite on wandering or traveling to strange new places, many times, every year . Maybe I traveled too much when young , but I don`t have the same appetite as you anymore , so it is a joy visiting the world, through your eyes, and beautiful art . Thank you sweet friend.
