When one embarks on a journey, it is often asked, “What are you running away from?” I wonder if they asked Christopher Columbus the same question.
Is it not the potential prize that is of greater appeal than the current circumstance? Personally, I never felt like I was running away, if anything, I was running towards. Running towards adventure, exploration, self discovery, broader horizons.
I wonder if the question speaks more about the asker than the asked.
