TRAVEL BOG
(6/27/16)


we can
never
get the true feel
of a place
without actually
living there

a visit
is always
nice

but what
do we really
know
without eating

sleeping

working
in the same
area

for months

for years

without totally
investing ourselves
spiritually
in a location

commiting ourselves
to the point
where we are
accepted
as denizens

losing
the eyes
of a tourist

viewing
the true nature
of the environment

then wondering
what is over
the next hill
