|A Cottage by the Sea||
We would give anything for what we have.
Tony Hoagland quoted in www.gratfulness.org
Your life is short and rare and amazing and miraculous, and you want to do really interesting things and make really interesting things while you’re still here.
The future has many names. For the weak it is unattainable. For the fearful it is the unknown. For the bold it is opportunity.
Victor Hugo quoted in www.gratfulness.org
What city, not merely in Italy, but in all the world, is more securely placed with its circle of walls, more proud in it its palazzi, more bedecked with churches, more beautiful in its architecture, more imposing in its gates, richer in piazzas, happier in its wide streets, greater in its people, more glorious in its citizenry, more inexhaustible in wealth, more fertile in its fields?
If I choose to hide you away, it is for a reason.
I have brought you to this place.
Drink in the silence. Seek solitude.
Frances J. Roberts
As pilgrims we go back to find something we lost; we return to the source to be restored, rejuvenated, revivified.
Essentially all pilgrims are seeking to access, by way of a significant site, a spiritual reservoir charged in the past and constantly refilled.
On my way: Boston, Philly, Rome Termini, Florence.
