I have wandered the hills and valleys, splashed in the lakes, swum with the fishes, and sung with the birds.  I drudged through leaf litter in the dark forest and lifted my head to see the sky and watched it fill everything until all you could see was sky.

I had a traveling companion, an adventuresome Mockingbird who stands sentinel over one of my trees some mornings.

It was entirely mental travel.  No baggage fees, no boarding passes,  comfortable seating and plenty of free coffee and healthy snacks.  The only passport anyone ever asked for was imagination.  And we had enough of that to give the boarder guards a run for their money!
