The magic word

travel

Someone asked me once:

– “What would be the best gift for you? Something special?”

– “A travel”, I replied to him! “A travel to anywhere. In any way. It does not have to be far. It could be to a village nearby. To a city in one hour distance. It could be something he cooked for me. Something from a place he knows that I love. It could be a book for a place I love. A film or a cd with that music he knows it makes me travel with the mind. Travel is the magic word. Up to him to define it. Remember what Samuel Johnson has said: “The use of travelling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be to see them as they are”!
