As I mentioned on Wednesday I'm still going through a serious case of wanderlust.....however, an unexpected twist has made me think about what's already in front of me. A reader sent me this Ralph Waldo Emerson quote...."The real voyage consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes".
Now, I have always thought that my hometown and the surrounding areas were "pretty".....but it wasn't until I had my son and started bringing him back that I realized eastern North Carolina and the mountains in Western North Carolina for that matter are breath taking. The ocean breezes bring a permanent smell of salt to the air (that I miss so much when not here) and when I walk down the Beaufort boardwalk memories of having a mint chocolate chip ice cream cone EVERY Sunday from the General Store flood my mind.
So get out........explore where you live......right now......not where you want to live.....one day you may be lucky enough to travel (and I hope that you are!) but for now......New eyes are just as good as a new location.
