Phil Cousineau on the process of dreaming up journeys


Spread the love

“Reading old travel books or novels set in faraway places, spinning globes, unfolding maps, playing world music, eating in ethnic restaurants, meeting friends in cafes whose calls hold the soul-talk of decades — all these things are part of never-ending travel practice, not unlike doing scales on a piano, shooting free-throws, or meditating. These are the exercises that help lure the longing out of the soul and honor the brooding-over of unhatched ideas for journeys.”
–Phil Cousineau, The Art of Pilgrimage (1998)
