More of Kim's books…
“My life was wailing like a beautiful prayer, the moments stretching into hours, the days to years. I could see now that it was possible to live a long life poorly, or a short life well, and that at any moment one might shift their position and, after years of hibernation, decide to crawl out of the den and live.”

“That was the irony of travel. The bigger the distance between you and the familiar grew, the smaller and safer and friendlier the world felt.”
Kim Dinan, The Yellow Envelope: One Gift, Three Rules, and A Life-Changing Journey Around the World

Kim Dinan, The Yellow Envelope: One Gift, Three Rules, and a Life-Changing Journey Around the World
