"The middle of nowhere is often a place where you can experience whole beauty because nobody recognizes you except exactly who you want, where you want. There is freedom in nowhere. Nothing is assumed and nothing taken for granted. Sweet is sweet; wet is wet; the road is easy and hard in waves because the present moment and the conditions of the moment." -- Ruth Doan
