Who knows what lies ahead?

Life as a journey of exploration may be regarded as something of a cliché; but clichés exist because people have found them, again and again, to be true. And sometimes, an experience or even just a conversation, will trigger an exploration in which some new personal truth is discovered.

I recently had an email conversation with a friend I met on Flickr and it lead me down a particular trail of thought that resulted in an essay I have called A Tale of Two Cities.
