Does a journey really have to go anywhere?

Here are ten of my personal favorite journeys.

  1. Sitting in meditation on the way to bliss.
  2. Riding Amtrak’s Downeaster, south or north from Dover.
  3. Following a well-crafted novel, opera, movie, or play.
  4. Moving up and down a contradance line or around in a Greek circle.
  5. Exploring an archive.
  6. Meandering through an art museum.
  7. Pursuing the bass line while performing in a chorus.
  8. Probing the glassy world of a tide pool each summer.
  9. Entering a lover’s arms.
  10. Staying submerged in peaceful dreams or good memories.
