We say Bon Voyage
But who makes
A voyage anymore?
It means more than a cruise…

Certainly, outside of space
Where would you go
On a voyage…
Even for discovery?

Would you choose
The depths of the sea…
To journey to Mars…
When that’s possible?

What about beyond?
In the absence of warp drive
The commitment to travel in deep space
Is the work of a lifetime…

Even if we had such things,
My commitments are to
Make life better in the
Here and now…join me

    Very cool! I’ve never traveled much but now I kinda want to!

      You learn a lot about the world and yourself through travel. It’s been too long since I traveled with an open itinerary…just moving at my own speed and subject to change on a whim. That’s when it’s fun.
