#ToInfinityAndBeyond

"People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering."

 

– St. Augustine

 

And I remember that summer. It was a summer of sun rays and wavy days. But I was all alone in my own shell. I felt stuck. And fucked up. Guess I just haven't figured out life yet. After a year being on the road, I came back, and I didn't feel like I belong to where I called home anymore. These feet were meant to come across the ocean, climb the Everest, touch down every land on planet Earth. But home, it didn't make me happy like travel did. And just like every 20-some-thing out there whom used to experience this moment, I hid. I loved hiding outta the coast and took a long walk on the beach till twilight. I loved climbing up the rooftop laying there watching nightsky. All I did was trying to achieve a peace of mind, of what it's like to be free with the nature again. And I failed, unfortunately. But the sun, the moon, the cloud, the sky, the stars, the sea have taught me that happiness and a peace of mind can only be achieved when I stop waiting for it and make something of the moment I'm in right now. That untangled my mind. And it was priceless more than anything.

 

Thanks to #FlickFriday with such an interesting theme this week as I have chance to show my feelings. This one is also a snippet of an upcoming project I'm working on.
