other worlds, originally uploaded by - di.

One of those flash epiphanies of travel, the realisation that worlds you'd love vibrantly exist outside your ignorance of them. The vitality of many lives you know nothing about. The breeze lifting a blue curtain in a doorway billows just the same whether you are lucky enough to observe it or not.

Travel gives such jolts.
I could live in this town, so how is it that I've never been here before today?
