The Journey to Ithaca

The Journey to Ithaca holds a double meaning for MarketingMel

Thanks to the magic of twitter (Chris began following me and I returned the favor), I was fortunate today to stumble across Chris Guillebeau’s The Art of Non-Conformity blog. Chris just happened to have posted one of my favorite poems of all time about the Journey to Ithaca by Constantine Cavafy. I love what both Chris and the poet have to say about the journey sometimes being as important as the destination. Since I graduated from Cornell (in Ithaca, New York) I saw the double entendre when my brother presented the poem to my husband and me as a framed wedding gift some 15 years ago. I hope you will enjoy the read and thanks Chris for sharing. It was the highlight of my day.
