A Walden Pond ethic for world travel....

"The journey for the sake of saving our own lives is little by little to cease to live in any sense that really matters, even to ourselves, because it is only by journeying for the world's sake - even when the world bores and sickens and scares you half to death - that little by little we start to come alive." ~ Fredrick Buechner (Wrightings)

Choose to be alive! Choose to live. Choose to apply a Henry David Thoreau Walden Pond ethic to your travels... And enjoy the journey!

Thanks to Elliot Wright (and by extension, Camille and Ian Howells) for the reminder.
