The Darling Daughter of Adventure

Upon those travellers who make their way without maps or guides, there breaks a wave of exhilaration with each unexpected change of plans. This exhilaration is not a whore who can be bought with money nor a neighborhood beauty who may be wooed. She is a wild and sea-eyed undine, the darling daughter of adventure, the sister of risk, and it is for her rare and ephemeral embrace, the temporary pressure she exerts on the membrane of ecstasy, that many men leave home.

On Tuesday evening I left for Indonesia for a few weeks. I will still be answering emails but please bare with me for the slight delay in response.
