When we are high up, everything looks very small. Our glories and our sadnesses cease to be important. We have left whatever we won or lost down below. From the top of a mountain, you can see how large the world is and how wide the horizon.
When you travel you experience, in a very practical way, the act of rebirth. You confront completely new situations, the day passes more slowly, and on most journeys, you don’t even understand the language the people speak….You begin to be more accessible to others, because they may be able to help you in difficult situations.
