taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the Earth.”

The longest road in the world to walk is from Cape Town (South Africa) to Magadan (Russia).
No need for planes or boats, there are bridges.
It’s 22,387 km and it takes 4,492 hours to run it.
It would be 187 days walking non-stop, or 561 days walking 8 hours a day.
The route passes through 17 countries, six time zones and all seasons of the year.
“all walking is discovery, on foot we take the time to see things whole.”
*Harold “Hal” Glen Borland was an American author, journalist and naturalist. In addition to writing many non-fiction and fiction books about the outdoors, he was a staff writer and editorialist for The New Yorker.

by following the grandies through the rows and fields
then found hot air balloons
followed their colors
past the moon and the trees
saw their beautiful flight and landing
all on an afternoon spent among things raised from the earth.
“imagination is to love what gas is to the balloon-that which raises it from earth.”
– letitia elizabeth landon
wonder what the deadline on this project is?
so many things out in the world
just waiting to be discovered
one of my favorite things to do is to stumble upon them
share them with my camera and my words
“anything that excites me for any reason, i will photograph;
not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual.”
