“Not all who wanders are lost” This is a famous line for travelers. I always see this in photo captions but I’m not really sure who came up with this idea or who authored this famous quote. I, however wander because I wanna get lost totally, I want to empty my cup and learn from the experiences and people along the way.
Not everyone gets to see life from other people’s perspective, like how these two young local boys hike for hours to help their parents in charcoal making. I wasn’t able to immerse myself on what they do but I somehow saw their way of life just by talking to them and asking them questions. Sometimes, we can never realize how blessed we are unless we spend time with those less fortunate ones. We can never taste how great the food is unless we experience real hunger and we can never appreciate the comfort of having our own roof and luxurious place unless we experience getting soaked with the rain.
This is a flower fallen on a muddy soil, we oftentimes just pass on it without a second glance. Not everyone has the eyes to see its beauty.
