One of the principal pleasures in life is to ‘imagine’. Einstein says a mind once stretched cannot come back to its original state. When one sees larger horizons, touches and feels them, trivial matters cease to bother his being. The horizons beckon him and leave him aching.
The horizons of landscapes and roads, peoples and cultures, of perceptions and divinities gesture me to come to them.

This slow journey to my horizons moves on with highs and lows, joys and sorrows, hopes and crashes, smiles and tears and myriad emotions overwhelming me each day.

While I learn to live and live to learn, each day has come to be a metamorphosis.

In the preface for the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, there is a story of a frog that grew up to be the biggest frog in a small pond. One day a frog, from near the ocean came by and told of a huge body of water. The small pond frog, not believing that anything could be larger than his pond, demanded to see it. When they made it to the ocean, the pond frog’s brain exploded. The idea of such a large body of water was so incomprehensible to him, that his brain exploded from being stretched so far. Sorry, the Einstein quote reminded me of this story.
