Terra Incognita

A  L  O  H  A !
New Day As Yet Unknown
" McCandless yearned to 
wander uncharted country,
 to find a blank spot on the map. 
In 1992, however, there were 
no more blank spots on the map-
He simply got rid of the map. 
In his own mind, if nowhere else, 
the terra would thereby 
remain incognita.” 
                       Jon Krakauer

"I don't know where 
I'm going from here, 
but I promise it 
won't be boring." 
                       David Bowie

“It’s okay to get lost 
every once in a while, 
sometimes getting lost is
how we find ourselves.” 
                              Robert Tew


Each new day is 
unknown territory.

Blending old and 
undiscovered stories.

The longitude and 
latitude of Habit
overlay another world
'Terra Incognito'

At least that is
my credo.

Thank YOU
for stopping
Voyage of Discovery!
                    Fondly, cloudia

Love the sky in the first. And quite a lot of mind is uncharted territory. Someday it may be mapped, but I doubt it.

I love terra incognito myself. never thought of just getting rid of the maps.

I love the sunrise picture at the beginning of this post. I think your road is leading to a swim in the bay, but Pixie obviously does not agree with me. She is thinking of how to wear your lovely pink flip flops... :) Great post, Cloudi.

I don't know if I could get rid of my map. I love maps. Maybe hide my map in the woods and I'll try and find it.

The McCandless story is a strange one. His father's a sociopath.

The kitty is irresistible!

Spectacular picture of that sunset at top. I love the blues and the golds, reds and hazy purples.

Always thought provoking, challenging the reader in a gentle and positive way.

Events over the last year have shown me that each and every day really is unknown territory 😃
