Another amazing day-this time overlooking the white-chalky-cliffs of Beachy Head, From the top of the hills, you could easily loose your footing, and the talc erodes constantly with rainfall.

Remembrance of cliffs past...the talc- hills have receded a bit...

Victor Hugo was exiled here for 15 years and I had the good fortune of taking a tour today of the writer's home. It's as if each room was a chapter and the home was actually another book. I'll let a few of the pictures speak for themselves.

He is certainly quotable but thus one resonates-
"Nothing makes a man so adventurous as an empty pocket.'
It is here where the writer completed his masterpiece,  Les Miserables, using a stand up desk..Sitting was the new smoking back then too.

Hugo wrote Latin phrases into his furniture, honoring God and also his beloved writers Moliere and  in his kitchen, the "H" in the wall tiles, we'll that stands for his family's name obviously.

Fear is for folks who don’t get out much

“I know men who are healthier at fifty than they've ever been before, because a lot of their fear is gone.” 
― Robert Bly

Travel, at its best is creative destruction. In the wisdom of the moment,the power of a new language, food and culture and people are not problems to be solved but mysteries to be lived.

The whole exercise has to be one of reconciliation.Lowering, removing or shattering the walls of misunderstanding which unduly separate we human beings, one from another. It's not so much about being understood as understanding. A lot of times, it's not you it's U.S. winning  the geographic lottery being horn in the USA. Why go anywhere else, eh?

The Hunt For Happy- is the longing for repetition.

The difference between hope and despair is a different way of telling our stories from the same facts. Pleasure is not happiness but the joy I have extracted from trips depends more on the mindset I travel with than on the destination I travel to. I don 't want to tell anyone where they ought to travel, but only how and why.

In the midst of Kabul's Winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible Arundel Summer
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.
