Traveling at home and abroad

Those of you who visit the MindSieve regularly know that, I, often while reading a book unencountered before, quote the book here. Today is just such a case - once more from Joan Chittister's Wisdom Distilled from the Daily/Living the Rule of St. Benedict Today. Her words seem apropos to the posts I've written in the last couple of days about the wonder and joy of traveling in new places.

"Humility says that we must all learn to listen and to hear, to negotiate rather than to force, to trust rather than to terrorize, in both our neighborhoods and our nations.

When we learn to be aware of what is around us as well as in us, we begin to connect with the rest of the world in new ways."
