The Discreet Traveler

Dear Readers,


This is not the end of my travel blog--but it is the last post from this particular, 22-month journey around the world. We are sure never to do this again! From 29 countries, please enjoy 29 pictures--and one thing I know--"when I look at the world." A post for everyone who's asked "What was your favorite?"

A Franciscan Benediction

May God bless you with discomfort: at easy answers, at half-truths, and superficial relationships; so that you may live deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger: at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace.
May God bless you with tears to shed: for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.
