Questions of Travel

Is it lack of imagination
that makes us come to
imagined places, not just
stay at home?

Or could Pascal have not been
entirely right about just sitting
quietly in one's room?

Continent, city, country, society:
the choice is never wide and
never free.

And here, or there... No.
Should we have stayed at home
Wherever that may be?

'Questions of Travel'
