"The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see." - GK Chesterton
Four or five years ago my siblings and I got an email from my dad. The subject line simply said "Today" and the message was just a short simple quote. And every single day since then (except when his computer confuses him... I mean he is 66 😉) he's sent another "Today" quote. The consistency really is quite remarkable; in fact seeing that message pop up in my inbox is probably the most consistent part of my day besides the natural processes of the rising sun and my constant need to empty my bladder. I'm not sure where he finds them all, but the sources are extremely varied and always thoughtful. I appreciate them more than I think he knows.
He sent this one from GK Chesterton last month, and it wasn't until this morning that I remembered it and realized how well it captures my Banff experience.
I didn't see what I came to see, but I loved what I saw. Glad to be a traveler.
