    Fascinating World Beckoning Places... "How very simple life would be If only there were two of me A Restless Me to drift and roam A Quiet Me to stay at home. A Searching One to find his fill Of varied skies and newfound thrill While sane and homely things are done By the domestic Other One. And that's just where the trouble lies; There is a Restless Me that cries For chancy risks and changing scene, For arctic blue and tropic green, For deserts with their mystic spell, For lusty fun and raising Hell," ​ from The Double Life by Don Blanding India's International Travel Magazine Touriosity 100th Issue Milestone 2,996 3 16 likes.
