Time to travel

“I struck the board and cry’d ‘No more;
I will abroad’.
What, shall I ever sign and pine?
My life and lines are free; free as the road,
Loose as the wind.”
— George Herbert (1593-1633)


“Don’t let the same dog bite you twice.”
— Chuck Berry


Going solo

One's Company - cover

“… the ideal companion is rare, and in default of him it is better to make a long journey alone. One’s company in a strange world.”
— Peter Fleming, “One’s Company”

“Even if I should, by some awful chance, find a hair upon my bread and honey – at any rate it is my own hair.”
— Katherine Mansfield, from her “Journal”.
