'No, life cannot be understood flat on a page. It has to be lived; a person has to get out of his head, has to fall in love, has to memorize poems, has to jump off bridges into rivers, has to stand in an empty desert and whisper sonnets under his breath... We get one story, you and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and resolution. It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn't it?'
Through Painted Deserts by Donald Miller
I kind of wish I could take to the open road but while physically I can't just bog off I'm very much enjoying reading about Miller's epic journey.
love this advert - a genius reminder to embrace the real world :)
