Wednesday wanderings...

Travel teaches how to see.
~ African Proverb

Words of wisdom...when we travel, we do learn to see in new ways, our eyes are open to wonder. We experience new places, new cultures, new rhythms of life.

We look up

...and find wonder in works of art and architecture

...and are awed by Creation...

We look down

...and experience the vastness of our world that stretches for miles...

...and witness the delicate beauty in every inch...

We look out...

...across oceans and far horizons...

...and find rainbows in flowing waters...

People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars... and they pass by themselves without wondering.
~ St. Augustine

If, as we travel, we allow our hearts to be as open as our eyes, we can indeed wonder at ourselves and learn to see ourselves in whole new ways.


We look inward

...and find the strength to climb mountains...

...and the courage to strike out alone for a time of reflection and renewal...

Great post! I am always amazed how much we miss if we don't bother to look.
