Sabbath Journey


The journey inward will follow and external journey that leads across the continent and back with many stops along the way.  Part of the goal for this trip is to slow down - to appreciate the unexpected, to focus on the present: here and now, not where I am to be and when...  having said this there needs to be something of a schedule... something of a plan...
