The Sunday Traveler ~ A Quick Shot in Big Sur

bigsurview1

A peaceful view of the Pacific at Big Sur from the vantage point of Nepenthe. A traveler can sit here for hours lost in meditation.  At some point during travel, it becomes absolutely necessary to stop; just stop, and really see what it is you’ve come to see. As I get older, I’ve come to realize that rushing from one place to the next during a trip is not necessarily the point of traveling.

  2. Very wise words illustrated with a stunning photo, Angeline. Doing or being is often the unconscious dilemma we go through in life.
    Being aware of it, no matter how old we are, it’s life changing.
    Have a peaceful week.

    Ooh, Angeline, this is beautiful! I’m imagining myself meditating in this place. I agree. I dislike traveling when you have to rush going one place to the next. I think it’s exhausting and you really can’t enjoy it.

    So true.. I have also now learnt to stop and “smell the roses” so to speak… we miss so much when we rush down the road…
