O’ how I wish to explore
Beyond my country.
Sheltered by America,
I long to breach its borders.
There is so much more,
More than our brief history,
Our moment in time.
The lands of our ancestors
There–just a voyage away
~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
I always wondered why people pick Magellan. Didn’t he die during his voyage?
Yes he did, he apparently died in the Philippines and never finished his voyage, actually he just happened to be the first explorer to come to mind. Maybe not the best choice, but he did have bold ambitions. 🙂
True. I just notice that he seems to be the first one mentioned a lot. Even by me.
…. some day ….
I hope that I live long enough not to miss it. 🙂
Reblogged this on Steve's Blog.
Thank you Steve, I’m glad you liked it and I appreciate the re-blog. 🙂
Love it, thanks.
It’s insane how often I feel this way. You put it wonderfully.
I’m glad you could relate, I feel this way often myself. 🙂
