Άκης Τεμπερίδης: Όσα μου έμαθε ο δρόμος

Πηγή : Andro.gr
Τρία χρόνια από όταν επέστρεψε από τον γύρο του κόσμου, ο δημοσιογράφος Άκης Τεμπερίδης καλύπτει (με την όπισθεν) 168.000 χιλιόμετρα μέσα σε χίλιες λέξεις. Και συμβουλεύει: «Το ταξίδι είναι εθιστική εμπειρία. Η ρουτίνα σκοτώνει!»

Choice

To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea… «cruising» it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in.

«I’ve always wanted to sail to the south seas, but I can’t afford it.» What these men can’t afford is not to go. They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of «security.» And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine – and before we know it our lives are gone.

What does a man need – really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in – and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That’s all – in the material sense, and we know it. But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention for the sheer idiocy of the charade.

The years thunder by, The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed.

Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life?

Sterling Hayden, Wanderer

Way of thinking

«Taking risks is important. Without risk life drags on into a mindless web of routines where the vitality of hope is slowly sucked from our memory. It’s not long before we are deceived into settling for less of a life than what is actually achievable. I’m always grateful to hear a tale of ordinary people freeing themselves from these illusions.»
