Literature and history books are filled with stories of journeys. We read about Odysseus, the hero of Homer’s epic poem the Odyssey, Paul’s journeys, the exploration of new worlds by Columbus and others. We often reflect upon life as a literal and figurative journey. We hear, “It is not about the destination, but the journey?”
We are starting a new journey in a New Year, which feels a lot like last year to date. I will admit that I am more about the destination than the journey. When I travel, it is not about the sights along the way but getting to the end goal. I just want to get where I am going.
Historical journeys often took months or years to make. All of us are on the journey of a New Year with an undetermined destination. What history do you have with a journey that may help in this New Year?
