A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it. ~George Moore
This quote says succinctly what I have been saying to friends lately. I no longer feel the push to travel but would rather stay home and think and write. At first this made me feel old and then I started to realize that it is in the natural order of things to seek and then reflect. It is not just a question of energy, but more a matter of the direction of one’s curiosity. The more I traveled, the more I found that things do not vary that much. Everywhere I’ve gone, the same personalities are sprinkled over the landscape. Only the landscape and the percentages change. Once you’ve found a place where there are the greatest number of people who appreciate you for who you really are, you have found home. Then the task is to go inwards. That is where the real journey exists.
