To start the New Year, we thought it would be fun to participate in the WordPress writing challenge: “Ice, Water, Steam…What does it mean to be the same thing, in different forms?” coupled with this week’s photo challenge: “New”.
Same, yet different creates new. A play on words? An oversimplification? Maybe. But consider the words of Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”
As our travel adventures continue, I take these words to heart. I must confess I don’t really know much about this ancient philosopher or if any of his other words-of-wisdom would resonate with me. But these ring true in my world.
Living the gypsy life as full time RV’ers plays out like a colorful kaleidoscope of travel escapades resembling sitcoms, tear-jerkers, documentaries and all genres in between. We aren’t the same people we were when we embarked on this journey almost two years ago and yet reflections of our former selves will disembark in the future.
So, in 2015, let’s embrace life’s constant change and stick an oar in that river to choose a path and not just be swept away!
