this makes me want to live experience life - taking everything in. meet inspiring people. build true relationships. see the world in all of its exquisite details. be filled with awe. encounter the extraordinary. recognize beauty.
Always keep Ithaca in your mind
To arrive there is your ultimate goal
But do not hurry the voyage at all
It is better to let it last for many years
And to anchor at the island when you are old
Rich with all you have gained on the way
Not expecting that Ithaca will offer you riches
Ithaca has given you the beautiful voyage
Without her you would never have set out on the road
She has nothing more to give you.
And if you find her poor, Ithaca has not deceived you
Wise as you have become, with so much experience
You must already have understood what Ithacas mean
