Day 34: Monday, April 25, 2016
A new day dawns here in Dayton OH. The clouds dominate at the moment, but I hope the sun will eventually break through as we drive to WV today. These travel days have passed so quickly. I guess that is what happens when one is having “the time of his life!”
I read these words from Kahil Kibran a few moments ago:
“All those who are born with a hunger for Life, are not trying to touch the outer edges of other worlds by deep thinking and deeper feeling—our sole desire is to discover this world and to become one with its spirit.
The great poets of the past were always one with Life. They did not seek a point in it nor did they wish to find its secrets. They simply allowed their souls to be governed, moved, played upon by it.
Poets are not merely those who write poetry, but those whose hearts are full of the spirit of life.”
It struck me that this is what I want (a poet?)—not to merely travel and see—but to let all of it become a part of me—and me, a part of it all. I want my heart to be full of the spirit of life—one with its spirit!
Thus, I travel on again today to take in all of the mystery and wonder that my soul can manage.
