I woke up yesterday, thinking about the people in my life, places I've been and experiences I've had. It soon dawned on me that many of these things, integral parts of my life, having shaped who I am or what I believe, are things I was not at first drawn to. We've always been told to "give it a try", but more often than not after that first try if something is difficult, unappealing or goes against what we believe, we don't come back to it. I'm beginning to believe though, that those things we once listed in the "no" column of life are the very things we should come back to, open our minds and explore once again.
"Home" even as Webster defines it could be one of many things:
In the most basic sense of the word I'd gravitate towards option number four, my home being Wisconsin, the place I came from and will always have a desire or obligation to return to. Since leaving that home though, I've discovered that this simple four letter word can symbolize such vast different worlds for each person who utters it.
Home, we know, is not just the place where you happen to be born. It's the place where you become yourself. ~ Pico Iyer
Emptying my Head
I'm an overthinker, my brain is always on overdrive. Sometimes the thoughts are pertinant to life, and other times they're just a trove of wonder. They're usually about, related to or in memory of travel. When they're good I like to share.
