"We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way" - Khalil Gibran
From his bestselling masterpiece, The Prophet.
The most well known of Gibran's works, The Prophet explores the wisdom at the intersection of his various spiritual influences. Not only did this line resonate with us, it also seemed particularly appropriate. Gibran and the poem's narrator both saw enlightenment as a personal journey rather than a prescribed code. The Middle Eastern-inspired geometry suggests paths and forms an intricate lock. Through the keyhole, the ocean and its expansive horizon invite a journey into the uncharted. After all, the wanderer must often give up the comfort of home and companions to discover the unknown.
