The idea of journeys to unknown destinations is a fascination. Taking yesterday's body post as a starting point, pathways diverge. So, Jackie connects the body as text to Jeanette Winterston's Written on the Body. And then Tassneem, who leaves a comment on the Flickr tattoo picture, leads me to the wonderful footprint image. A footprint that fades in the tideline, how wonderful! And then, on an independent journey, when I visit Onepotmeal for my daily narrative fix I find this:
