“There is an eternal landscape, a geography of the soul; we search for its outlines all our lives.” – Josephine Hart
I have often wondered what is the magical ingredient about travel that enables time to feel suspended and one’s senses to amplify. Does this unfold when you when you step away from your normal ordinary everyday and arrive in a new place?
All my senses were firing exponentially during a recent visit to Italy. I attempted to be intentional about acknowledging my awakening senses: to tune in and savor the experience. It all started with the clever key we were given for our hotel room in Milan. My sense of touch ignited the journey.
Just kidding. I am not moving; but I am dreaming of a reason to return.
Obviously… our taste of Italy was divine.
Taking in the sight of Italy’s architecture and artistic genius left me speechless.
I would love to hear from you if you have visited Italy… If not, I hope you are inspired to make your way there someday soon! I promise your senses will come alive and your internal landscape will be shifted forever. Grateful for the gift of venturing into new landscapes (even stepping outside our ordinary radius when we are home). No matter where we go, I believe an exquisite and promising landscape awaits.
