Have I seen a lot of a little or a little of a lot? The breadth of our experiences doesn’t mean a breadth of living. In the navy I traveled the world with some people who never saw anything. I also know some people who never left the state of Virginia who see more clearly and further than I ever will. It takes more than eyes to see and more than ears to hear. It takes will, and it takes courage. The wide world is scary and it doesn’t always conform to our wishes. Living in it doesn’t come from being born. It comes from being born again.
