For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move. ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON

Between The Lines

The suffering is unending/Every nook and cranny has its tears/I'm not playing, I'm not pretending/I'm not nursing any superfluous fears BOB DYLAN

Well I'm living in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line/Beauty walks a razor's edge, someday I'll make it mine BOB DYLAN

Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE

I am just going outside and may be some time CAPTAIN LAWRENCE OATES

Well, I'm off for a walk very soon. I would really appreciate any encouraging comments, my blogfrères and blogsoeurs - despite the elusive and allusive nature of this post. All will be revealed in the course of time. Of course. For time is all we have.
Till soon or later.

Will be watching for posts from wherever you will be walking. Am back to walking again. Sure feels good. I like walking best in the fall and winter.

That's a slightly ominous valediction! Bon voyage, wherever and whenever.

Have a good walk, my friend. The lines you have lest us with ate rather heavy. Hope you are not feeling too heavy yourself. Come back soon.

The first Dylan quote always make me smile - it's the way he pronounces superfluous to make it scan.

All is good. Ish. I'm in Lodeve in High Languedoc. Along the Arles - Puente La Reina pilgrim route. I must make everyone envious and admit that the weather is absolutely superb - very warm with blue skies. A bientot.

Very good and....

onward.

We are, somewhat regretfully, home. We last saw you at the war memorial in Joncels, but met Celine from Canada later on, who had met you earlier, so that counts as a meeting by proxy. I posted a couple of pictures on my blog, one of a motley crew including you and I, and another of Celine giving us phone assistance: http://timecheck00.blogspot.com/2008/09/existential-friendships.html

A motley crew indeed! I really regret not going for the pizza rather than the tripe sausage that evening. However the company more than made up for the food!

I've reached Pau - which is a miracle considering I'm in some pain with my feet. So I've been slowing down.

Nearly stepped on a snake yesterday - looked like a young viper but with a yellow neck band.

Great to hear from an "existential friend"...
