Half of me agrees with him, the other half still yearns to see what’s over horizon line. The art of enjoying STILLNESS is one of those hard to find embellishments in life- pondering, reflecting and enjoying the raw beauty of God’s creations and more importantly, finding happiness and acceptance in your personal connection with Him. Since embarking on this sailing adventure, we’ve had a re-discovery of the many ways God manifests himself to man. I wouldn’t necessarily negate all travel- but I would suggest that you can find places which trigger the desire in you to just reflect- to become STILL and let yourself reconnect with your maker.
