Travel is a quest for common miracles

I want to know what it feels like to actually be in a place that I’ve always heard about, to be part of its daily atmosphere and rhythm. I don’t need to see every famous sight, every last mosque and museum; art is all around me, wherever I look: intricately woven baskets in an Asian market, elegant pottery in an African village, ornate silver jewelry on tribal women.

I marvel at how broadly the artistic gene has been distributed: at the human ability to make ordinary objects of extraordinary beauty. I marvel at the beauty of the people themselves, especially women and children. I marvel at the infinite varieties of religious experience: the countless forms that faith can take, the endless thanking and beseeching and propitiating of gods through worship and song and dance.

These are some of the common miracles I go in search of.
