Quote of the day

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Mark Twain

"Looking back, I'd have to say that knowing was better than not knowing. Now I can reassure myself that the symptoms are not just in my mind, they are literally in my head. They say that knowledge is power, and knowing that I have MS gives me the power to deal with it rationally. Or so I keep telling myself. "

A Few Questions
"It doesn’t seem fair to me
Some get the chance to chase their dreams
And some don't.
But what do I know?

I wasn’t there the day you filled up the oceans.
I didn’t get to see you hang the stars in the sky,
So I don't mean to second-guess you
Or criticize what I don’t understand.
These are just a few questions I have."

From an interview with author Paul Theroux on traveling by road

On the road, Namibia"Flying from one capital city to another is not travel to me. Travel, especially in Africa, must be overland and must involve the crossing of borders — negotiating on land, usually on foot, the national frontier. That experience teaches a great deal about the state of the country. Of course, it’s sometimes dangerous and always time-consuming.

Anyone who has traveled in Africa and not crossed a national frontier has truly missed the necessary misery and splendor of the journey. Crossing an African frontier alone suggests why any sort of development is so difficult. I do not recommend this to the faint of heart — even traveling by road from South Africa to Mozambique is no picnic; but from Ethiopia to Kenya, Kenya to Uganda, Tanzania to Malawi, and Malawi into Mozambique (customs post under a mango tree on the Shire River) you learn a great deal."
