No Destination

A  L  O  H  A !
Constant Neighbor

Do not pursue what is illusory - 
property and position: all
that is gained at the expense of 
your nerves decade after decade 
and can be confiscated in one fell night. 
Live with a steady superiority over life - 
don't be afraid of misfortune, and 
do not yearn after happiness. . .
            Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

 Sidewalks more than 100 years old, King St. Honolulu

There's something about arriving in new cities,
 wandering empty streets with no destination.
I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked.
And I dare you to notice.
And that's the point.
Just walk. See.
There's a whole lot of world out there.
I dare you to see it.

When walking through the 'valley of shadows,' remember, a shadow is cast by a Light.

"...and do not yearn after happiness."

Don't worry. If I get happiness I'm not going to yearn anymore.
