Why do you go away? In recent years, I try to go as a pilgrim rather than a tourist. A Sufi teacher told me that pilgrims travel with the idea of giving something back. I never know what I am giving--only that I want to do more than take away from my adventure.Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.Terry Pratchett
from A Hat Full of Sky
Any plans to go away? A little over 6 weeks from now, I get to go t0 my beloved islands. Oh, yes...I do.
