In February I reported the sad news that my friend Harold Stephens had died.
After Steve died, I made the acquaintance of Albert Podell, co-author of the book Who Needs A Road? that originally led me to Steve’s door.
A few weeks Al extended an invitation to attend a presentation he was scheduled to give to a meeting of Circumnavigators Club.
And so I found myself last night in the fascinating company of a group of people united by the fact that they’d all circumnavigated the globe. Al provided a cook’s tour of his 50+ years of travel, illustrated with selections from the thousands of photos he’s taken along the way. Good stories were told.
My desire for travel, which I thought I’d effectively sublimated, emerged.
