Have I told you lately that I love you?

In Yiddish there’s a word for it: bashert. The meaning is something like “intended”: the person who was meant for you. We’re not talking about a soul mate, though modern usage often spins it that way; the original meaning is more complicated. Your basherter won’t always make you happy, and your life together won’t always be easy. But there’s a sense of rightness, of having landed where you’re supposed to be.

These pictures, from 1965 onward, in some way reflect a thought game [which] began with a though about how I would love to see more of the world. I would love to travel deeply and widely. And what is the deepest and widest you can travel? It’s to come back to where you already are. And I saw my own circumnavigation of the Earth in my mind’s eye, and I realized in that moment that nothing would be more dear to me than where I already was.
— The incomparable photographer Emmet Gowin¬†about the wisdom of staying close to home and family.
