Destination is never a place

If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.

-Henry Miller, The Oranges of the Millennium

My bro is pushing off again for adventures far, wide, and splendorous. In my course reading today I came across this Henry Miller quote and it reminded me of Erik.

And in the spirit of the traveling tribe we offer these words today (Travelers' Psalm 121 with my own paraphrase):

Dear one,
Blessings to you
The sun shall not smite you by day,
Nor the moon by night...
The Great Spirit protects and guides you
Your going out and your coming in, from this time forth, and even forever more.

What blessings we've enjoyed, this time together. Peace and love and grace enfold you until we meet again. Yeeeeeeooooowza!

"I'm so glad you had this time together, just to laugh and share a song or two. I think that came from the Carol Bernette show but I'm not sure. It just popped into my mind as I was reading the post. I AM glad you had this time together. Safe travles to you, Erik.
