If you don’t travel,
you miss the history within your bones.
You settle for a backyard instead of the world.
Travel reminds you of beauty, possibility,
and all the rhythms of the spirit.
Other ways, languages, temperatures and foods
let you find the new ways within yourself.
The people you glimpse, meet or touch
become part of what you are…richer, deeper.
The things that keep you home-
fear, inflexibility, bias, the unknown…
keep you away from your true home.
The world is where the heart is.
