Man is a tame or civilized animal; never the less, he requires proper instruction and a fortunate nature, and then of all animals he becomes the most divine and most civilized; but if he be insufficiently or ill- educated he is the most savage of earthly creatures. - Plato

the road

Awaiting 1 more ratings...

the days come and go like mile markers on a highway miles turn into weeks the years are brief stops to take a look back at what I'm leaving this time the valleys between the mountains the beaches along the coastline the storms between the Sun and stars all add color and begin to define the canvas the journey nears it's end a destination never planned if only we could turn follow the road back to it's beginning ...and start again
