I have travelled far and wide, and seen the unseen, experienced the thrills, imbibed the serenity, explored foreign streets. I have tasted the bitter-sweet pangs of loving and leaving a place. But still I am famished for more, to see and explore the unknown. Travelling, for me has always been like having a love affair, an affair with myriad places I have visited. Some chunks from my heart lay scattered all over those places. My only regret is I wished could have stayed a little longer, embraced them a little harder, explored some more nooks and corners and been more wanton. But it was always time to move on.
It's wishful thinking but someday I will go back to those old flames, those places where some part of me still resides. I will ignite my fading memories and once again imbibe and breathe the scents that had once enticed me. As for now, I have a home to keep, a house to run, a family to feed and some work that need to be done. But my travelling affairs has changed something deep inside me. I am a different person now after coming back. But as they say, the time moves on and so do we.
The prompt for today, August, 6th, 2016 is Wishful Thinking.
