“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” -Andre Gide
This coming summer we are packing our clutter and driving... And driving... And driving to Maine.
This was my conversation with my 8 year-old about it:
Naomi- Mommy will it be winter when we arrive even though it's summer here?
Me- No, we're not crossing the equator this time so the seasons stay the same.
Naomi- So I won't have a second summer?
Me- No, but as we drive we'll have to keep changing the clocks, because the time WILL change.
Naomi- TIME will change? Wow.
"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
