“When you travel, you experience, in a very practical way, the act of rebirth. You confront completely new situations, the day passes more slowly, and on most journeys you don’t even understand the language the people speak. So you are like a child just out of the womb. You begin to attach much more importance to the things around you because your survival depends on them. You begin to be more accessible to others because they may be able to help you in difficult situations. And you accept any small favor from the gods with great delight, as if it were an episode you would remember for the rest of your life. At the same time, since all things are new, you see only the beauty in them, and you feel happy to be alive…” The Pilgrimage
I decided to bring “To Quote the Famous…” back! I used them in my old blog and because I recently worked on a photo book for my parents, it reminded me of this awesome quote. They traveled to four countries in Europe this past June and I thought, at one point my dad had no shoes while growing up in Mexico and now he is traveling the world. What an inspiration. Have your parents done things that really surprise you? What do they presently do that inspires you?
