A sample quote
from the public literature project
"Those Who Go"
I was delighted to learn there is a wonderful contemplative public literature project with nearly the exact same name currently showing in the beautifully designed Denver International Airport. It is entitled simply "Those Who Go."
The artist honors "those who go" by assembling great quotes on travelers and traveling to inspire them as they move through the airport. Even better, an entire library of books devoted to traveling are available free through the project website and free airport wifi for downloading.
The creator of the exhibit says:
"As far as I know, there are four ways to travel:
- in Space
- in Time
- in the Mind
- and in one's own Self.
What a creative way to share great books and to create a reading culture around and in celebration of one of humanity's greatest activities. What a wonderful reminder that being a 'person who stays' doesn't mean you can't be a person who goes...off in time...in the mind...or in one's own self. Which free book will you download?
Special thanks to friend Suzanne LaRue who told me about the exhibit.
