A few weeks ago, we came across this replica of Christopher Columbus’ flagship, the Santa Maria, docked in Columbus, Ohio. I won’t offer commentary on the man or the results of his voyage. I will offer up that I was surprised at how small this ship seemed when considering how far it would have traveled and how uncertain each day must have seemed to those upon it.
It’s a good reminder to step off the paved path to explore what’s on the other side every now and again. And to respect those you meet, and all you discover, along the way.
