The photo and poem are from an old blog post dating back to a road trip in 2013, out west somewhere. It is fun for me to look back to see a previous post years ago. I forget sometimes that I started blogging in April of 2008, starting this 'new' blog officially in 2016.

AN OLD PHOTO, PLUS A POEM
The reason I never can quit the road
Is a reason that's plain and clear.
It's because no matter where I may stop
And whether it's far or near
There's a place beyond the place I am
Wherever I may be at,
And then beyond is a place beyond
And the world beyond all that!
And as long as a man has eyes to see
And a brain that wants to know,
I figure there's things he's bound to miss
If he doesn't go on and go;
For there's always a place beyond the place
I happen to hang my hat,
And another place beyond that place
And the world beyond all that.
There's some folks stay in a single spot
Or a town of which they're fond,
And never worry a little bit
At the thought of a place beyond;
But the place beyond the place beyond
Won't never let me rest,
For there's a sort of a kind of urge
That's burning within my breast.
To go and go till the end of life,
And when I've left it flat,
Go on beyond the place beyond;
And the universe after that.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
