“The journey of a thousand miles…

… begins with one step”, said the philosopher Lao Tzu.

I chose this motto for the trek, not only because it’s completely correct, standing for any personal or other project one undertakes. But also because it has a deeper meaning to me: even big social change can begin with small steps in the right direction. For instance: letting (or helping!) every migrant reach dry land before reaching a decision on their right to asylum (instead of extending the borders of Europe outward into the sea and the desert, as in past years); or allowing asylum seekers to travel freely and seek useful employ while they wait (instead of locking them into camps).

Anyhow, here is the symbolic first step of my personal journey for the summer, taken in Ljubljana. Thanks Milford and Barry for taking the photo!
