Quote for Today: Walt Whitman

Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land.

      Thanks! The photo is from the Chinese Garden at Sag Harbor Gardens on Staten Island last summer. Whitman is so wonderfully honest… it got him banned at the time, but has kept him marvelously relevant.
