We are, with fingers crossed, seeming to tiptoeing back to something approaching normalcy. Whatever that means.
Soon after I post this blog entry, we will be heading to the airport for what I am sure will be a predictably unpleasant red-eye flight to Europe to meet up with a ship in Stockholm.
Once we have landed, the travel commences and that is the enjoyable part.
But why do we travel?
You can travel to experience spectacular scenery. Or to time travel through history. Speaking for myself, the joy of travel is in how it helps you better appreciate and understand the place from where you started.
I go to learn how other people live and allow it to inform me about my own life.
A favorite fragment from T.S. Eliot:
“And the end of all our exploring
“Will be to arrive where we started
“And know the place for the first time.”
