Why did I want to come here?

A few people have asked why I wanted to come here. They can't relate or understand why I am here, let alone why I would winter here. I'm not sure they ever will. There is a quote that I first saw on a marathoning shirt, but it applies to anything that someone is passionate about that others might not understand.

"For those who understand no explanation is needed, ...For those who don't none will do". - Julius LaRosa on the Jerry Lewis telethon

Video by Matt Harding.

For those who understand what this video invokes in me, you know. For those of you who don't, I can't explain it. When I see this video, I am inspired by the world we live and want to explore it. I want to see what I haven't seen. I want to experience what I haven't experienced. Learning about the people on this planet is something that I find so enriching. I can't explain why. I just know it is.

  1. there's another version of that quote. my uncle reminds me once in awhile:

    "for the believer, there is no question. for the non-believer, there is no answer."
