What struck me about this trip to Luxembourg were the skeleton trees. It was not quite spring yet, but so beautiful.
I think my fascination with Lux has to do with the fact that it is so different from where I come from. The Caribbean countries I have visited and resided in are jam packed with bright, vivid colors everywhere that sometimes get rather sickening. In contrast, the colors in Luxembourg city are far more subdued.
Of course, this is a classic syndrome of the grass being greener on the other side and all that. Exoticism, after all, is beauty that is different from the beholder’s norm.

“If you were a window
and I was the rain,
I’d pour myself out
to wash off the pain
I’d fall like a tear
so your light could shine through,
then I’d just fade into you…”
Fade Into You – Clare Bown & Sam Palladio

It is important to remember that there are people who live a very different way of life from you. No better, no less.
Do not condemn what you do not know or understand.
That is the beauty of travel. You learn to be slow to judge, and more open to the beliefs and stories of others.

This is a reminder for myself as much as it is an exhortation to you. It was part of the PostSecret blog a few weeks ago and it struck me. It’s a great blog to check out if you need a reminder that you’re NOT alone in the world.
