Although a journey is the act of traveling from one place to another, it is also often used figuratively to describe the passage of stages in life's events.

Julia's What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday354
As a Christian, I observe Lent, which is a journey to repentance in preparation for the Paschal Feast (Easter Sunday). By praying, meditating on God's Word, and practicing self-denial, I reach my destination in Him. This is in imitation of the 40-days that Jesus was tested by the devil during his journey in the wilderness. It is a reminder of Luke 4:8, "Worship the Lord your God and serve him only." Hence the Easter eggs too, which are a symbol of renewal.

As an artist and writer, I am on a journey of experimentation and discovery. Even when I have a vision, I don't make it exactly to my destination. As I often say, "mistakes are opportunities for innovation." In the words of American author, John Steinbeck, "A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us."

As a family man, I also enjoy literal journeys with my family. I always like to document them through my photography. In my mind, the latter should always tell the story of the journey, so observation is keen and ongoing. My goal is to capture the joy and wander we experience throughout the journey. And in the words of American photographer, Imogen Cunningham, my favorite photograph is, "The one I'm going to take tomorrow…"
Hope you make the best of your life's journeys, regardless of where they take you. Thanks for visiting my blog, joining my followers, and taking the time to leave thoughtful comments. Godspeed!

Thanks for visiting already. I'm so glad you like that triangular box - it just struck me as a bit different, and ideal as a little gift for Neet.
Take care. God bless.
Have a great day.

I am grateful for the life I had, for surviving a concentration camp and for the fact that I feel no hatred any more. I learned this from the Lord's Prayer, which says that we have to forgive in order to be forgiven.
Have a great Lent and then a blessed Easter.
