To the vagabonds

There’s a book I turn to time and again. Vagabonding, by Rolf Potts. I wish I would have heeded the call when I first came into possession of its advice. Alas, I was mostly sedentary for several years after.

There’s a beauty in exploration. And I greatly admire the modern-day adventurers, exploring and attempting to better the world through learning and understanding. 

And vagabonding is an amateur’s embracing of exploration. Getting out and seeing the world. 

The quote in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is this:“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life. … Walter Mitty: To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.”
