The Journey is the Destination

Now, Voyager, sail thou forth, to seek and find.”
~ Walt Whitman

The backpack is ready…all the dots are connecting. From those camps I went with my mother when I was a girl, to the many times I camped out as a very young woman. All the things I learned when I was 16 are coming back, all the dreams I dreamt at 14 are here again. Sleeping bag again, the smell of a campfire, the connection with the Earth…Oh Nature under the stars!

How hard to realize that every camp of men or beast has this glorious starry firmament for a roof!  In such places standing alone on the mountain-top it is easy to realize that whatever special nests we make – leaves and moss like the marmots and birds, or tents or piled stone – we all dwell in a house of one room – the world with the firmament for its roof – and are sailing the celestial spaces without leaving any track”.  ~John Muir

Tomorrow, I’ll visit O.U.R. Ecovillage   and will start exploring Permaculture from one of the places that walks the talk. I’ll be joining a gathering to discuss food security and what’s being done in BC.

and I shall watch the ferry boats, and they’ll get high, on a bluer ocean against tomorrow’s sky. and i will never grow so old again, and i will walk and talk, in gardens all wet with rain…”
~ Van Morrison

Can’t sleep…water, islands, lakes, Nature!!!


About Silvia TIC

Welcome to these exercises inside the dimensions of what we are: we are what we dream and think and feel, but we are also the different characters we perform, not just the roles (mother, wife, friend), but those things we call “occupations” or “earning a life”. More than anything, we are part of a giant ecosystem and all what we do connects and impacts others (people, animals, plants, air, water...)
