"When you Travel"

Dec. 7, 2013

                This is the time of year when travel is big, and here at The Red Victorian we are happy to be a place that people are excited to visit.  Traveling is a time to step outside of your home and explore the great earth that we live on.  Today we explored one of Sami’s posters in our weekly Peaceful World Conversation.  The title of the poster is “When you travel.”  So, naturally we wanted to know what parts of the poster spoke to you most and why?



                Pete and Natchra who were visiting us from Portland spoke about their chosen modes of transportation while traveling and while at home.  They prefer not to use cars and they are appreciative of the knowledge they gain while riding public transportation.  Because of their understanding of how the transit systems run it makes traveling easy in foreign places and allows access to the entire city. 

                McKenzie who was visiting with her mother Sandy from Wisconsin shared with us a part of Sami’s poster that stuck out to her.  She read, “refuse to carry with you an empty head or an empty heart.”  She believes that traveling takes an open mind.  You have to be susceptible to all things new and travel with an open mind.  She is fortunate to get to travel with her family here to San Francisco and were excited to spend some time with us here at The Red Victorian. 

                Another piece that had a strong impact on us was, “know that hate crimes will cease when we listen to each other, when selfishness and envy are replaced with compassion.”    These conversations are set up to encourage people to sit down and talk to one another, to listen and really listen.   Traveling is when your mind is truly opened to new things and it can shape us in ways that we want to change the world.  Peace begins with us, start now and join us Saturday morning at The Red Victorian for a conversation with us!
