"WHY WE TRAVEL" by Pico Lyer ("SALON MAGAZINE" March 18, 2000)
"[Travel] whirls you around, turns you upside down and stands everything you took for granted on its head.
"We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence to become young again - to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.
"There is wisdom in turning as often as possible from the familiar to the unfamiliar; it keeps the mind nimble; it kills prejudice, and it fosters humor.
"Romantic poets inaugurated an era of travel because they were great apostles of open eyes. Buddhist monks are often vagabonds, in part because they believe in mindfulness.
"And so if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it is a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed.
"That is why the best trips, like the greatest loves, never really end."

Thoughts To Think About
. . . From Around The World . . .
There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting ~ Buddha
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get when you don't ~ Pete Seeger
I told my suitcase that there will be no vacation this year. Now I'm dealing with emotional baggage.
The most difficult thing to learn is something you think you already know ~ Jiddhu Krishnamurti
Our separation from each other is an optical illusion of consciousness ~ Albert Einstein
I don't paint what I see, but what I saw ~ Edvard Munch
Travel is the passport to peace ~ Dr. John Freedman
Hold on while I overthink this . . . . . . . . . . . .
Sometimes it takes me all day to get nothing done
Is there ever a day - that mattresses are not on sale?
Ban pre-shredded cheese, and make America grate again
Never laugh at your spouse's choices. You are one of them
Dogs prepare you for babies ... Cats prepare you for teenagers
It's not the dryer that makes clothes shrink ... it's the refrigerator
Bread is a lot like the sun ~ It rises in the Yeast and sets in the waist
My spouse says I have two faults. I don't listen .... and .... something else
I've always had an irrational fear of speed bumps, but I'm slowly getting over it
Is the glass half empty, half full or just too large? The important thing is it's refillable
Why don't I have any tattoos? For the same reason you don't put a bumper sticker on a Ferrari
Intelligence is like underwear. It's important that you have it, but not necessary that you show it off
I might wake up early and go running. I also might wake up and win the lottery. The odds are about the same
I just got pulled over by the cops. He said: "I can smell alcohol." I told him that was because he wasn't respecting social distancing
The fact that Kansas and Arkansas are pronounced differently - bothers me way more than it should
I saw an ad for burial plots, and thought to myself: "that's the last thing I need."
Relationships are like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y
I named my dog "6 Miles," so I can tell people I walked "6 Miles" everyday

It's not the water on the outside of the boat that sinks it
We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment
We do not see the world as it is ~ we see it as we are
I've not been everywhere ... but it's on my list
How wonderfully early it is - - - to see you
I am the world - through which I walk
Animals are empathy with fur
