Self-Discovery Journey

George A. Moore (born on 24 February 1852- 1933) was an Irish poet and prose writer, art critic, and dramatist.

A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it. πŸ‘ˆ

The difficulty in life is the choice. The wrong way always seems the more reasonable.

Un uomo gira tutto il mondo in cerca di quello che gli occorre, poi torna a casa e lo trova lΓ .

La difficoltΓ  nella vita Γ¨ la scelta. La strada sbagliata sembra sempre la piΓΉ ragionevole

πŸ‘‰ T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets (Little Gidding) – 1942

β€œWe shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”

β€œNon smetteremo mai e esplorare.
e la fine di ogni nostra esplorazione
sarΓ  giungere lΓ  dove siamo partiti
e conoscere quel luogo per la prima volta”

  1. Beautiful I love this stuff it’s so enlightening .Gene used to say, you can learn from anyone even a homeless person a streetwalker prostitute and I would look at him like how do you know I was a baby then. yes when we stop learning like I said yesterday that’s when they close the coffin. learn something new EVERY day .I had a man that worked for me as a handyman and he watched me running around the house taking care of , I had five cats inside and he saw me preparing lunch for Gene and making everything perfect around him , I was trying to get the curlers out of my hair the rollers I was trying to get to the market with the handyman he would be driving my car . on the way to the market he said what do you do for yourself I’ve watched you many times washing floors washing laundry buying diapers for the husband but what do you do for you ??? I don’t know I guess I Breathe. you have to do something for you every single day. now that was hard to fit in every single day so any time he came here to work in my yard he said ,what did you do for yourself yesterday?? I did nothing but I wouldn’t tell him that. I said, oh I LEARNED six new words. that’s good he replied. next time he saw me, what did you do for yourself yesterday?? I still didn’t do anything for myself I thought putting on earrings and lipstick and a pair of high heels and running all day was doing something for myself but it wasn’t. what did you do for yourself today outside of bathing and feeding and brushing hair what did we do for ourselves today ?? well I look at my friends here on the internet I take a few minutes for myself in the morning and late at night . I may write something ,but I look at several blogs and I say that’s what I did for myself today I warmed up my brains. hahaha. I expanded my horizons today !!!!! 🍦

    1. It’s a beautiful message, dear Sharon.🌹🌹🌹
      I also consider the time spent here on WordPress a gift that I give to myself. Especially now that due to the pandemic I go out very rarely, I find a great community of friends here, who make me feel alive
      Have a wonderful day.
      Here it has been sunny all day (so I did the laundry) 😏πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

      1. Sai? Anche per me il blog Γ¨ molto importante stranamente perΓ² PiΓΉ il tempo della pandemia passa meno mi concentro. Mi si accavallano i pensieri c’Γ¨ una centrifuga in funzione.

      2. A me, invece, Γ¨ diventato impossibile concentrarmi su un libro. Leggo racconti, i post dei miei amici, ma ho difficoltΓ  a prendere un mano qualcosa di lungo e complicato!
        E pensare che prima li divoravo, i libri
        Ognuno di noi cerca di trovare un modo personale per sopravvivere i a questo triste periodo, non credi?
        Un bacione (●’β—‘’●)


  2. Quello che dici sul cambiamento nel tipo di lettura mi fa riflettere. Collego con lo stare all’erta , un pericolo che non si sa soppesare, il piacere a piccoli sorsi. Grazie che mi fai pensare.
