It may be cold outside at night and there are most definitely drawbacks to living on the road, but for all the challenges there are just as many perks and new experiences to discover. I love taking a hot shower, yet I am surprised how well am able to cope and get by without that old daily ritual. Many of my habits are stunted and new routines form. My westward horizons are uncharted and still a looming mystery to unfold, while looking back reminds me of the land covered, the towns past and seen. I never knew how easy it would be to leave it all behind. The daily newfound liberty of a nomadic crawl is ever increasingly full of continuous potential. I am ever asking myself what do I want, what do I want now, to do, to eat, to see next. It seems like I’m leaving my old life behind, though I know I carry everything with me. I am who I am because of what lies East. I know how lucky I am and I count my blessings regularly.  I give many thanks and share my gratitude.

Channel your inner Mark Weathers a bit and google then visit some of your local libraries and trail-heads.  My homes away from home.

The trees are speaking

What whispers will spill,

from between the cracks in the bark?

What creaks and moans,

bends in the wind,

grows tall in the dirt and snow.

Greetings of fruit to bear

shade from the heat during the Summer months,

shade from the Sun’s far reaching┬árays.

What ways do you grow?

What fruit do you bear?

Who do you cast a shadow upon,

as the sunlight feeds us all…
