Elephants

Elephants | Jacob's Journeys and The Odyssey | Scoop.it

To some this is only a funny picture of an elephant in an environment it obviously doesnt belong in, which is what i instinctively thought first as well. but, upon further examination i have come to the conclusion that the elephant is on a journey. One that requires patience, determination, and perserverence. You could also say that the animal has no choice, where else would it go? Then comes the question of what is the prize for the animal? My opinion, a very large peanut.

1838 Trail of Tears

1838 Trail of Tears | Jacob's Journeys and The Odyssey | Scoop.it

In 1838 the Potawatomi were removed from their lands in the northern part of Indiana and sent on what is now known as the 1838 trail of death. The trail is roughly 660 miles long and it took 2 months for the nearly 900 members of the tribe to complete the journey. More than 40 people died on the journey. This is a common theme throughout indian history. The journeys that Indians were forced to take was great, but thats how many great journeys are started, they are forced.  To view the whole story go to http://www.potawatomi-tda.org/ptodhist.htm

Journeys

An English proverb states that a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. This is most definatly true. Journeys are long and many people forget that they start with small things, and are made up of small things, such as the proverb and picture suggest.

Journey's End by J R R tolkien

Journey's End by J R R tolkien | Jacob's Journeys and The Odyssey | Scoop.it

In western lands beneath the Sun
The flowers may rise in Spring,
The trees may bud, the waters run,
The merry finches sing.
Or there maybe 'tis cloudless night,
And swaying branches bear
The Elven-stars as jewels white
Amid their branching hair.

 

Though here at journey's end I lie
In darkness buried deep,
Beyond all towers strong and high,
Beyond all mountains steep,
Above all shadows rides the Sun
And Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
Nor bid the Stars farewell.

My interpertation of this is that even at the end of your journey you still have lots to do. you also do not want to be finished sometimes at the end of a journey, such as the end of a school year, or when you finish a book.
