maps and places...

I have been think alot about these because of your postings...
here are some points from my stream of thoughts...
1) I have a place that is very special to me for many many reasons.
HOPEFULLY my ashes will rest there too... I went back there 20 years after
I left it, and it struck me today that most of these places that we link to
do not change as fast as we do, and hence act as anchors for our memories...
we change but our back drop does not...
2) then I was thinking about the book "The Road" of Cormac McCarthy, and the
role of their map, the symbolism of the road as life that we travel... a map
(religion, philosophy) can help us in the general direction BUT we...
WE have to walk that road and only WE can do it! it is OURS to walk...
it is OUR choice to walk it in OURS way or to someone elses rhythm...

my two pence is on the table...
