>>To Denise Walker: Just a comment on your remark about the journey being
as important as the destination. I agree with that principle as it
applies to art ed, but if you have ever been on a REAL journey, you know
that the journey itself is never as satisfying and fun as the
ARRIVING. As a matter of fact, the journey can be filled with
irritation, road blocks, stalls along the way, mechanical problems, and
disasters of all kinds. There is nothing like pulling in to the
driveway of your destination!
Sure there can be problems along the way--but the destination may not live
up to your expectations either...
I've had some of the most fun just exploring back roads with no definite
destination in mind --and the purpose is simply to explore and discover.
(The only thing definite is to eventually end up at home again. <g>)

I think it's a matter of both/and, not either/or.....
