Learning to be at home

Mission Hill

And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,
no matter how long,
but only by a spiritual journey,
a journey of one inch,
very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground at our own feet,
and learn to be at home.

― Wendell BerryThe Unforeseen Wilderness: Kentucky’s Red River Gorge

  1. As I age and take care of father and live in new town and don’t know much of area I am learning to reduce my area of place and be at home most of time reading and drawing and cooking.

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
