The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. (Marcel Proust, 19th-20th century French novelist)
Christopher Columbus and Amerigo Vespucci were renowned explorers and are noted for their great discoveries of formerly unknown landscapes. Not many of us will ever be thought of as explorers, but we could make great discoveries. Not by world travels or extra-terrestrial journeys. By searching the ordinary with a new focus; who knows what we might discover?
Ears to hear and eyes to see—both are gifts from the Lord. (Proverbs 20:12)
