An excerpt from 365 Travel:
Take A Trip
“I think it was Jung who pointed out there is a big difference between falling and diving. At the beginning of this trip I was falling, I think, a figure at the mercy of gravity and whatever passing object I could grab on the way down. Like maps or friendly cafes or people who spoke English. Now, even though my form is far from perfect, I am better able to dive into new waters, leaving behind barely a splash as I enter.”
— Alice Steinbach, Without Reservations
