Man always travels along precipices. His truest obligation is to keep his balance.
-Pope John Paul II

“Everyone knows the more you wear pearls, little by little they become real….And isn’t it the same with memories?” – The Madwoman of Chaillot

Travel is my balance. It keeps life from being too much the same and also keeps me from being the same. Meeting people, learning history, seeing things my eyes have never seen keeps my life in perspective. Blogging about it keeps the memories true.
