Ithaka Bound - The Doorway to the Silk Road

Image Hosted by

People are standing around with bags, rucksacks, suitcases, backpacks, carry alls and saddle bags at the door to the Cave. And to think Sibyl said to travel light! Lucky we have a big store room to keep things so that people can pick them up on their way back home. That room is filling because there hasn't been too many leave the realm.

The first instructions from our guide are at Soul Food Silk Road. Keep checking this and Ithaka Bound if you get lost. We are bound for Ithaka. Ithaka lies within the realm of the Silk Road somewhere, tucked away from view. It is a very enchanted place, a bit like the dreamlike lake of Nemi - Diana's Mirror, as it was called by the ancients. No one who has seen the calm waters of the lake where the Amazon Queen's summer palace nestles, can forget it. Sip from the waters and you forget about the earthly realm and feel the creativity pulsing through your veins.

Ithaka Bound will be open to the public for comment. If you don't get an invitation to join and want to post on this blogger please let me know. I will post out a swathe of invitations but it is very easy to overlook someone so for goodness sake don't let this happen and get lost.

If you are on the Soul Food Cafe mailing list do make sure to ask for an invite to join because I will not keep sending instructions to the whole group.

This is most confusing. I started at Ithaka to check our bags. Now I am bound for there again. Is this a revolving door?

Gracious Nessie! :-) You do indeed appear to be caught in a revolving doorway. You are going into the cave of the Enchantress at Umbria, Italy, and headed, along the Silk Road towards Ithaka. No-one begins at Ithaka! It is the journey and all that!

Jade is one of my special traveling companions. She whispered that she always walks through such doors backon. I think she means backwards. I'll try that.
