An Apology to My Readers

 

IMG_1482This Autonomous Traveler is behind in her blog posts because she traveled autonomously this week!

I went to Ottawa, Canada to see a special exhibit of impressionist artists at the Canadian National Art Gallery.

As usual, I immersed myself in this travel experience. On one of the gallery walls was a quote from the French artist, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875). “Reality is part of art, feeling completes it.” A woman I met this winter, Inez Bracy, a self proclaimed “audacious living coach” (inezbracy.com), told me to write from my trance. I didn’t know exactly what she meant until I saw Corot’s quote.   Our true power  is something beyond reality, science and reason. It is the unexplainable light that moves us outside ourselves and toward something higher and creative. I am so glad I believe.

Corot’s words sums up how I feel about traveling and what I want to convey in my blog postings. I write about the reality of the places I visit but I also want my readers to know what I learned, what I felt, and what I have become because of the journey.  I want to convey the essence of my experiences  with something more than just the five senses. I want to reach hearts and souls and encourage people to go on their own journeys of discovery and not only see the world but feel it.

  1. Hum! So sad you. Ame to Ottawa and not contacted me… I wad back from NL on the 24th.
    I felt similarly as I travelled NL and hung an offering in the Spirit Garden at the Beothuk Interpretation in Twillingate. I wish for health, wisdom & good fortune for my family and friends and you’re among them. Lucky you😉

      I’m a geek. I have to read everything at an exhibit. I stayed for hours and then spent more time in the bookstore. We are both blessed and thankful. Wasn’t sure when you were coming back. Sorry!
