“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.”
-Mark Twain

1x1.trans What Travel Does | Lubbock Photographer

I like using my blog for anything that may cross my mind and I got to thinking about why I have the beliefs I do. Yes, some are probably ingrained in me since birth. Some are due to being a male. Etc….

But I find it very interesting when you can tell if a person has traveled. Mark Twain’s quote rings as true today as 140 years ago when he penned those words.

I lived in Spain for a while during college. Changed my perspective on almost everything. Simply time spent in a place and culture out of your comfort zone. I think it ought to be a requirement for high school or college to spend abroad.

That’s all. Just something I’ve been thinking about.

Here’s a quote from Charles Darwin that’s of interest in thinking about working on ourselves (now don’t get all crazy based on what you think of Darwin, truth is truth when you find it):

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”

I was reading a friend’s blog recently and and he was discussing what was the BIG SECRET to becoming a better person? A better photographer? Better wife/husband, employer, sister/brother, friend, neighbor, parent, whatever…???

The answer is…

Are you ready. Like me, and like most folks, we don’t like the answer.

Which is…

We need to work at it. The key word being work. Ugh! What an ugly sounding word that is.

But the truth is right there in front of us.

To be truly progressive and always growing, prospering, we need to work on ourselves. We need to be learning, and over time, we grow upwards, climbing, and enjoying the view the higher we get.
