Columbus day has me thinking of the word discovery. Some days I find myself wanting to set sail and do as the words of the Cheers theme song said — go somewhere where nobody knows my name. It’s usually at those times that I find myself weary of the routines of life or overwhelmed with my present circumstances.
At those monotonous times, running away to some distant land sounds like an enticing albeit illogical idea.
Yet it is at those times I can benefit the most from having fresh eyes to see all that is around me.
Even in our familiar lives there are new things yet to be discovered. Can you perceive them?
