I have the best memory to write that would fit so beautifully on my Study Abroad blog, but I have papers to write! Nooo. Hopefully I can come back to this picture a little later tomorrow and convey the emotions I encountered on a deserted country road in Turkey...

The Shepherd always waits for us who have lost our way.

Third Track, 'Tew Ante Sew'. Sorry, I just couldn't resist. The minute I saw this image Gigi's voice singing this particular track came into my head. I love the sax in that song, too. Many thanks. That's one wonderful painting.

Greetings from London.

He walks among sheep
A grand king in his own right-
Leading, staff in hand.

An excellent painting

He walks tall and proud.
They follow his orange turban,
feeling safe in his confidence.

James Parker said...


Back when I was wealthy,
It was hard to get to sleep,
So I took a friend's advice,
And started counting sheep.

I went and spent my money,
On a sheep ranch down in Texas,
Then bought a brand new pickup truck,
And gave away my Lexus.

Now Mary had a little lamb,
That followed her to school,
I've got a thousand on my butt,
And a warehouse full of wool.

.... but I would not like to be a sheep......

MY sheep hear MY voice they follow me.

WHY? said...

I don't want to be sheep, either. I don't like to conform to the herd, and prefer to follow my own way. Following can be very dangerous.

Abhishek said...

After a long, dusty day,
I've got nothing much to say.
Except take me back home,
And let no more to roam.

The Shepherd stands tall,
He, makes way for us all.
Leads far from harm,
And keeps us not to warm.

The heat may be strong,
And the road winds long.
Yet We will follow on,
And never long gone.

My, what do we do,
To get our selves through.
Nothing, nothing, but follow,
Follow the shepherd till tomorrow.

Meandering Michael said...

I once was a Bollywood name
The people all flocked to my fame
So I made a big leap
Now I'm tending to sheep
I'm still followed: but get more acclaim

My name is KC Owens, I’m a college student and I love to travel! While cruising the Internet, I found your site and really enjoyed reading your posts. I have been to countries all over Europe with just my backpack and a camera. Since I am a college student and I have significant bills, it can be difficult to find ways to travel the world. However, I have done this several times, with less than ten pounds of luggage and while on a college dime!

I was hoping that you would allow me to write a post for your site to share my tips and tricks with your readers. I put a lot of time into my traveling, it is my biggest passion and I would love to inspire others by sharing my stories, mistakes and triumphs. I look forward to hearing from you!
