We are like nomads wandering, searching, drifting aimlessly like a splinter of a disbursing cloud in the vastness of the sky. Fading ever slightly, as the wind sweeps it away.

THE JOURNEY

By Al Garcia

We are like nomads wandering, searching, drifting aimlessly like a splinter of a disbursing cloud in the vastness of the sky.  Fading ever slightly, as the wind sweeps it away. 

The human journey, designed to astonish and inspire from the first gasp for air of a newborn child, to the last teardrop of an exhausted aging soul.  A paradox of saneness, of clarity.

Each journey ever changing.  Unpredictable.  Unreliable. 

Each step a measured effort to reach the sheltered canopy of certainty and success, the benchmarks of human fulfilment. 

The journey exposes the truths, the lies, the wickedness, the kindness and the warmth of all that we are capable of, and all that is within us. 

Each day our journey leads us to many paths, as well as high peaks and low valleys.  And it is up to us to choose our steps and marvel at the sights and sounds and beauty that surrounds us.

For we are like nomads.  Wandering.  Searching.  Drifting.  Our journey never-ending.
