More and more, I’m realizing these little moments are one way of marking our progress in a foreign language—they are the tiny minnows that would have otherwise swum right through the net of our mind.
The Book Passage travel writing and photography conference is a kind of touchstone place I keep returning to, and yet each year finds us all moving forward in our lives and work as well.
The past four days gifted me a series of phrases that have been circling in my head from the moment I heard them, so this year I thought – why not let Book Passage speak for itself?
I’m welcoming the space this stillness will bring to my life – the space to dive into the story I’m hoping to share, and to dig deep into the lessons these last few years on the road have taught me.
May 2014 be a year of adventure, a year of doing what we love, a year of experiencing things we can’t even begin to fathom right now. That was the final lesson 2013 taught me: Leave room for the unexpected.
Carrying me through each step was the gift that Book Passage gave me, and others: assurance that we are on the right path. That every page written, every risk taken, and every dream believed are actually leading somewhere.
