Travelling Light


This is my response to my “On the Road” prompt  The Road is Life

This week I have used quotes from both Jack Kerouac and Matsuo Basho as inspiration.

“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life”

― Jack Kerouac, On the Road


“I set out on a journey of a thousand leagues, packing no provisions. I leaned on the staff of an ancient who, it is said, entered into nothingness under the midnight moon.”

-Matsuo Basho, The Record of a Weather-exposed Skeleton – his first travel travel journal.

  1. Always good to travel light, whether physically or emotionally. Emotional baggage needs more effort to discard, but well worth it to lighten our step and be open to new beginnings. Nicely written, Suzanne.
