The number one issue of safety isn’t always who IS watching and participating with us but much more so who wasn’t asked to join us or purposefully included. In all of our experiences when we thoughtlessly unite with people who are unknown, how many of these circumstances are very unknown/uncertain and even quite risky? Of … Continue reading

Stranger Danger. Easy Squeezy. (Part 1!)
Remember when your mother told you not to talk to or accept rides and candy from strangers? Maybe the most valuable lesson in life…but once you grew up and started making choices for yourself, a lot of us kind of neglected that teaching. After all, “I’m a grown up and can make my own … Continue reading
I’m a minimalist. To be a long-term traveler you really have to be. I don’t have the space to carry with me all of the modern conveniences I used to have living in the same place for extended periods of time…plus, I have to carry all of my belongings on my back, sometimes moving daily, … Continue reading
I might be a …Netflixaholic. (Not a real word? Might as well be!) There, I’ve said it. I’m not really sure what that means and I don’t feel THAT strongly that I’m correct about it, but what if that’s just part of the condition?

Lover’s De Ja Vu.
It’s not my first time. My first time was a year and a half ago. I’d like to say it was gentle and the chemistry flowed naturally, but I’d be lying. There were parts of it that felt like they were meant to be…serendipitous even…and others that felt like butting heads…not dissimilar to the perfect … Continue reading
Eyelids drooping, barely able to open them enough to see my way to the bathroom, running into a wall before finally finding my way through the door. Where did it suddenly come from anyway? The wall, I mean. I swear it wasn’t there half a second earlier, but then again, who am I to be … Continue reading
Choosing to rise above the ashes…
I have to rise above this. I can’t let this sink me. There’s too much to lose. I have a dream. It’s bigger than me. It’s bigger than all of this! And one day I know I will look back at these excruciatingly difficult moments with fondness for the lessons they taught me and the doors that opened up because I refused to shrink and instead chose to rise like a Phoenix from the ashes.
