Ramblings from Cologne

As I sit below a magnificent church, surely a something regarded as a wonder here in Cologne, Germany, I realize the truth in something which I have been saying for a while now:

I am tired.

Lest anyone worry themselves, I am getting plenty of sleep. My body, and to some extent, mind, are in perfect (well, normal) physical health. It is, in fact, my soul which has become weary. My passions, dreams, and challenges have all become, well, commonplace; I do what I want, when I want, how I want. Travel has lost its excitement, and in many ways has become as mundane as the daily communte to work. Find a new place, meet new people have a lot of fun, get to know the local surroundings...Move on. While exciting, engaging, and incredibly encouraging, this style of life does not allow for certain things to develop fully.
