enroute to Manitowoc WI
Last month's experience was markedly different. For June's full moon it didn't occur to me not to go out for a better look. Aboard the Grande Mariner sailing Lake Michigan I couldn't get out on deck fast enough.
Lake Michigan versus Country Club Pond. Being away versus being at home. The novelty of places I've not been before versus a certain nonchalance, even a dreariness, for the familiar.
No laughing matter really. I think like myself more when I'm away from home. In fact, I know I do. I feel more interesting and interested, and maybe I am. An experiment seems in order. To look at my everyday surroundings with the same energy I do the places we explore in our travelers. Something just might come of the effort of seeing home through a traveler's eyes.
