Destinations! People rushing to different routes,
business destinations, pleasure trips, with small or big luggage.
Do we ever arrive at the desired place?
Let’s just remember the great Greek poet Constantine Cavafy:
“As you set out for Ithaka
hope the voyage is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery.
Laistrygonians and Cyclops,
angry Poseidon- don’t be afraid of them:
you’ll never find things like that on your way
as long as you keep your thoughts raised high,
as long as a rare excitement
stirs your spirit and your body.
Laistrygonians and Cyclops,
wild Poseidon- you won’t encounter them
unless you bring them along inside your soul,
unless your soul sets them up in front of you….”
Each and every one of us has her / his own destination, which, hopefully, will be a long one, full of adventure, full of discovery!
