Before Discovering New Shores

One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.” — Andre Gide

I like the quote but it leads me to question what the shore is. Where is the shore for you? Is it something you can actually touch and hang onto or is it less tangible? Do you even have a firm idea just where or what your base (shore) is?

I don’t. I’ve moved a lot in my life. I haven’t felt any one place was really mine for a really long time and even that only lasted a short time.

Does that make it easier to leave the shore behind and try new things or harder? Not something I have thought about before.

How about you?
