Lately I’ve been having a lot of fun with the graphic design side of this blog feature, coming up with fun text treatments for all my favorite travel quotes. But when I flipped through my notebook and rediscovered this one I knew it demanded a simple presentation, for the idea itself is so complex.
Obviously this travel quote could have any number of different interpretations. To me, it means we need to stop dreaming of unachievable fantasies or enviously vying for more, more, more, and instead feel grateful for what we have and where we are in the present moment. And never do I live more in the present moment than when I travel, when I am disconnected from the day to day routine and the artificial anxieties of life at home. I am trying ever day to take that sensation, of being present and embracing every moment, and apply to my life no matter where I am or what I am doing.
What does this quote mean to you?
