New Horizons

A profound quote

Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

There’s something about this quote that grabbed me. I relate to an “endless changing horizon” as an horizon close to home, believing the treasure is in my own “back yard”. We don’t have to travel thousands of miles to find a treasure, our treasure, made up of new experiences. All we have to do is be “attentive”.
