Still walking after all these years

Walking came from Africa, from evolution and from necessity, and it went everywhere, usually looking for something.*
(Rebecca Solnit)

[W]hen we go, we find we’re not just entering new territory. We are becoming new people.**
(John Ortberg)

I need to keep journeying from somewhere to somewhere, to experience the journey in-between. We can end up thinking that life is about the destinations and the journeys are simply how we get there.

We can be inspired by what someone has done with their lives, but in the end, it is their honesty about the journey – those struggles, failures, inspirations, encounters, growing, becomings – that will help us most of all.
