I like this too. It's pretty and yet doesn't seem tacky, unlike "Destiny" which I think has achieved negative associations! I used to like Destiny, but so many people, including my parents, snubbed it. Journey is beautiful though. It's definitely on my list!

I actually like this one. It reminds me of an adaptation on 'Jenny.'
