FURLOUGH: Make Life a Sabbatical
The modern world is fast-paced. We are often busy; however, we seldom take the time to ask ourselves what we're busy with. Despite our tireless hard work, our time is limited and the world is small. Furlough emerged from the dream of making life a sabbatical. When we take a furlough, we are encouraged to step outside of ourselves and absorb a greater context. I believe one of the most beautiful things about traveling is learning to simplify, not only what we bring but also–and most importantly–our priorities in life. As Henry Miller writes, 'one's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.' May we slow down, work less, travel more, take only what's essential and leave a beautiful mark.
