Did you know there are many types of Journeys you can go on? Inner Journeys, Physical Journeys, Imaginative Journeys, Spiritual Journey, Mythological Journey, Life journey, Mind journey. Just to name a few. I think most would say the first definition would be Physical when asked by others. From what I've read from others who have written about theirs, I see more Life, Inner, and Spiritual.
I remember listening to "Gentle On My Mind", by Glen Campbell. It came out in 1967. I was 15 years old and starting to dream of things I wanted to do with my life. Being a mom was at the top of my list, then being an Art teacher but the one thing I always wanted that I knew was impossible and unheard of being a girl, I wanted to be a hobo. I thought it sounded so exciting. Sleeping under the stars, meeting all kinds of people, seeing everywhere I dreamed of going. But back then girls was not suppose to think like this. I think this is why I always wanted to be a boy.
Any time the life I was given (or you can say the life someone thought I should be living), became over whelmed. My mind would take me to the memory and feelings I had when I was so young. So many times the ramp to get on the highway looked so inviting. I just wanted to take that ramp and leave it all behind and drive to another place, another world. Any place but where I was.
I am 64 now and still have that dream from time to time to take that ramp. So I decided to dream that dream through others who did choose to live it. I love watching travel shows of any kind. I also collect photos from around the world since getting my first computer in 1998.
Today its easier to travel and even seeing it live. Technology has come a long way so by live streaming, I can now travel through the eyes of others.
Traveling through the lives of others, would fall under a Imaginative Journey and anytime I hear "Gentle On My Mine", I am traveling even after 50 years.
Here is the song, enjoy.
