The natural world. Looking pretty for 3.5b years.

A Traveler's "Quote"

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Sunday, September 1, 2013/Categories: Uncategorized, humor

Having recently returned from a bit of wandering myself, I was reminded of words by a far more famous adventure traveler, Samuel Clements. Mark Twain's reflections resonate as well today---maybe more so----than they did in the 19th Century when he wrote them:

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.


Mark Twain (credit: Wiki-commons)

Twain also noted: "You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus".
