And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.
– Pico Iyer
… thanks to Van Gogh’s 1888 painting for the older layer, to my iPhone for the newer view, and to PhotoSplit App for the combination …
If you’d prefer to see an unadulterated view of Van Gogh’s work, there is a board at the amphitheatre in Arles, or you can see the original at The Hermitage in St Petersburg.
And yes, I’m back again with my weekly quotation-inspired image.
