"Farther Meanings..."

"We seek an experience that adds meaning and perspective to our lives... Something that brings more meaning to everyday life... We will also find hardship, both in our wilderness excursions and in our life journeys, and if we don't open ourselves to it we cannot go far in our search for meaning... We may learn to see time, evolution, and life itself with new eyes; we may come to better know ourselves; we may place knowledge and truth in a broader perspective; we may become open to that heightened combination of awareness and aliveness called contemplation, and possibly experience a sudden flash of insight, an epiphany. All have helped me see the boulders in my river of life, and have shown me the surest route to the distant, shining sea... All are trusty guides, and true wilderness companions...". D. Backes

The journey is always to better ourselves. Sometimes, that includes going back.

How very much I agree Dean, especially about 'returnings'...
Thank you for your thoughts. :)
