Travelling, being out of your familiar environment, can feel very liberating and exciting - but it can be hard to hold on to those feelings once back to your regular life. That’s why I like having things around that remind me of my journeys and help keep them alive in my mind...
But you don’t need to be physically travelling in order to embark on a journey of discovery - luckily, we have a way of going to amazing new places without even getting out of bed. Books.
Reading is a truly magical thing, the closest we can get to experiencing the world from someone else’s perspective.
This morning, for instance, I’m exploring the nature of altered perception together with Aldous Huxley - in ‘the Doors of Perception’ he is re-examining familiar concepts under the influence of mescaline and looking at selected works of art through the lens of a psychodelic experience.
