9 muses musing - JOURNEY

"I am thankful for safe journeys and beautiful places."

Fifteen years ago I moved cross-country for a new job, ostensibly for a year or two, but life being what it is, I ended up meeting the man whom I would later marry and have a child with and building a new life.  So journeys have become a theme for me, journeys back to where I came from and the people I left behind there, and then journeying away again to my second home.

The holidays in particular are a time when we journey - to see our loved ones, to reconnect, to return to our homes.

What images evoke the feeling of JOURNEY for you?
Please link your blog or flickr url in the link provided below.

Your creative holiday prompt for tomorrow is: VILLAGE.


Today's giveaway is just about the niftiest little doo-dad I ever did see:
a combination macro/wide-eye lens from Photojojo for - get this - your cellphone!
With the explosion in iphone photography, this is sure to elevate your cellphone images.

cheers to you and yours,

I really enjoyed reading this post and identify with your story. It is such a joy to go back to the places we left behind and reconnect with loved ones there. The journey by what ever means of transportation gives us the time for reflection and anticipation. Safe travels to you.

It is entirely possible I have a one-track mind right now. I love all these images of roads and walkways. I'm so enjoying musing with you all!

Kim, I love this post. It's not the destination, it's all about the getting there.
