Jul 27 - South River, ON

surprise at the time passed by -
summer flashing and age reminded
as i go along - times before, times to come -
some grand perspective on it all
recognition of transition
coming of a new age
new ideas

the me i knew not long ago
is gone to character
a strange third person i used to know
oh so vaguely

this traveling has taught me much
and now i understand why travel has been for so long
an activity of broadening horizons
sowing one's oats and all that

but that recognition of a new phase
it is odd
it comes suddenly
though the phase may no longer be young
it can take a long time
to recognize it
settle in
