Journeys

via At the Top Of My World by `gilad on deviantART

“I have taken to walking through this landscape with a mental map that demands completion;

the blanks are the outline of what I still need to know.

In order to see our connection to the rest of the world, we have to know what lies between, and then look further, beyond the horizon.

If there is a hill in front of us, we must look from its top.

All of these imperatives would be frightening if they came from outside; coming from within, the dictatorship of geography becomes a means of self-knowledge of not only who we are

but where we belong.”

— Ron Matous “Among These Mountains” Parabola 18:2

via such stuff: we must look from its top

    it goes with this theme of belonging and longing.
