A long time away. Good to be at home.

I often have to ask, why do we roam?

What we treasure’s near, our family and our friends.

Everything’s familiar, current news and trends.

Travel’s become a nightmare, a cruel cattle drive.

You’re lucky if you’re sane when you at last arrive.

What is it that we seek when we go abroad?

What do we learn on strange and distant sod?

That others are like us? Hopes and dreams we share?

The same eternal questions and sorrows that we bear?

This wisdom is in books. We needn’t venture far.

If reading’s not your thing, try your local bar!
