travel quote_pat conroy

There is so much planning in creating a trip so unique from your regular routine.  There is an anxiety about work, the flights and details, perhaps, a language barrier.  Yet, when months of anticipation have led to an actual experience, a thousand different moments and sights crystallize into a unique treasure box of memories in the brain.  When the lid is opened, colors and sounds coalesce to create a private escape.

A new destination creates awareness of a whole new way of being, living, and processing.  It is so expansive, it is hard to believe that others have not changed during that time.  Time has passed! Haven’t you thought, heard, considered, determined, observed?  Have you changed at all or any of the things that you have done?

But, it is I who have changed, for I am not willing to tolerate the mediocre once my mind has been opened to new possibilities of adventure and appreciation.  The journey continues within to push me forward to new destinations and stories with a new ending.

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller

As it has been said, if it was easy, everyone would do it.

It is not an easy journey feeling and seeing so much.  We carry a lot of others’ pain with us, yet, when there is a crisis or a need, we are the best equipped and most willing to help someone else.

no right way to grow

open window onto the sea

 

When you grow up by the sea, you spend a good deal of time looking at the horizon. You wonder what on Earth the waves might bring – and where the sea might deposit you – until one day you know you have lived between two places, the scene of arrival and the point of departure.
