Musings: Exploring Other Places...

“I wandered everywhere, through cities and countries wide. And everywhere I went, the world was on my side.” Roman Payne

Small Stones#24
Sometimes I wonder if my curiosity is intact
I wonder if my zeal for exploration is waning...
I think back to past ventures and wonder...
Am I seeing as much of my world or not?
What is real and what is invented?
More below!

Small Stones#24
Just as I completed my second stone here, the server crashed
All my ponderings vanished... Blogger don't you have autosave?
Must explore that experience soon.
On my walks, I sometimes see things with new eyes...
A shrub here, a path there... all news.
Perhaps new explorations begin first in our hearts
and then our heads...

What are small stones?
According to the originators of this wonderful exercise, a small stone is a short piece of writing (prose or poetry) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment. The process of discovering small stones is as important as the finished product. Searching for small stones will encourage you to keep all your senses; - your eyes,(and ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind) open.

Some Food for Thought: Do you explore your area for new insights? Take a moment to contemplate what Exploration means to you? Love and Peace.

I would love to hear from you: Please leave me a comment. Thank You!

  1. Beautiful thoughts! Till the time to explore the world and self is there, one is living.

  2. "Every experience is a form of exploration" such a lovely thought, each day we learn something new either from our own mistakes or from looking around us or even taking a moment to introspect opens us up to a new world. Your posts are thought-provoking.

  3. Blogger and autosave...well, things happen. Sometimes, when I finish a draft, I copy the whole thing and paste on a note pad or doc file before hitting the publish button.

  4. Meenakshi TY! I wonder as I get older if my love of exploration will become jaded. I hope not. :-)

  5. TY Reshma! I hope to keep learning and exploring as it keeps my mind fresh... Yet, I sometimes wonder... :-)

  6. TY Aileen, I wish I had fair warning before the server crashed... I would have made a copy which I do keep. Que sera, sera! :-)

  7. There is so much for us to explore and discover. It would be great if plane tickets were cheaper too, lol!

  8. I hear you... I could use a free Oprah sponsored vacation too. :-) TY!

  9. I have the desire to explore all the hidden gems I can find. I just hope I can find the time to actually do it!

  10. I just love your pictures as always!!!

  11. Great article!!! I wish we could travel that much.. We generally go to near by places n explore lol

  12. My favorite thing is photographing the places I've been. When I'm stuck at home not able to explore, I love to look at the pictures I took and that usually inspires me.

  13. Ahhhhh being a person who loves to travel, I just love this!!!

  14. As always, I love your pictures! The first quote was very touching.

  15. What a lovely post. I hate it when blogger does that. There was a time that I had to rewrite the whole article!

  16. I have switched how I do everything lately. Exploration is definitely in my future.

  17. That is an inspiring quote from Roman Payne on how you could have the world on your side. The pictures are unique & beautiful which is something I always admire about your posts. Being a Travel addict & Photography lover I just love this.
