What better way to demonstrate the importance of living each day in its own right than to embark on a canoe journey in a new land and not even get on the water for seven weeks?
While we arrived at the shores of the Sea of Cortez anxious to explore the waters, to spend days moving with the rhythms of the winds and tides, our goal is not simply to race from point A to point Z. We have a vague idea of the geographic area we would like to cover and the essential logistics to accomplish that, but our true destination is not a place you can find on any map.
Our destination is the journey itself.
We intend to take our time and allow experiences to present themselves, which they have certainly done thus far.
Spend a day in a town and you will see a superficial facade, but if you share an afternoon with a family that has opened their home to you, you’ll find the lives and perspectives of all are impacted.
The world is full of dualities: it is large, but at the same time small. Its people are all different, but also similar. How and what you experience determines your point of view…your perspective. Your perspective determines the world we live in now and in the future.
Via the posts in this blog, we will be sharing our experiences and perspectives, in hopes that you can benefit from challenges to your own.
Take the desert for example…barren wasteland devoid of life or magical landscape? Does the photo of the Prickly Pear Cactus in bloom match your perception?
Over the past few months, we have collected many stories that have impacted our view of Mexico, the world, and where we fit, but first we’d like to introduce you to Wilber.
