Silas works at Harding University in Greece, an overseas program where students spend a semester just outside Athens.  A former attendee himself, he now leads the trips around the Mediterranean that made such a big impact on his life.  I asked whether he could put into words what this kind of experience does to a young person ... and hope listening like this evaporates borders.  Special thanks to the musician, Dana Boulé.

The mere exercise of attention—eyes wide, ears pricked, heart open—is not a bad way to move through the world.
