Travel for me is always a pilgrimage, whether I travel to a true holy site, like the tomb of Kwaja Moinuddin Chisti in Ajmer, India or to an art museum. I try to make my travels reverent. Even the sunny beaches of Mexico are shrines to me, and worship a swim in the Caribbean. On my most recent trip to the East Coast, I visited gardens, schools, art museums, cemeteries, friends and retreat spaces. All with a desire in my heart for refreshment , renewal. Why else travel? I will be posting photos and thoughts from these travels over the next few days, back dated to reflect the actually days of travel. I saw many beautiful people and places was refreshed, feel renewed.
