I’ve been low tech blogging, in other words using a journal and writing wherever I might feel like it instead of being tied to technology in some way. So I thought I would take the time to transfer from the low-fi to the high-fi all while sitting in a bar in Vancouver while on a well deserved holiday weekend.
The people I’ve met in the last two years have been incredible, the new friends the new connections and the possibility of seeing them all again someday makes me happy.
I was thinking of the story “The Places You’ll Go” the other day and I had the sudden realization that I’ve flown around the world more than once, I went from looking towards settling down in the Northwest and working in theatre low those many years ago. Now I’m looking at where I can go next, what will I do next, who will I meet and where will I meet them?
Never stop exploring might replace my personal motto, yes I know it’s a tag line from some outdoor gear company, but hey it’s a good motto to have. In my life I’ve changed from a very region centric to a very global outlook. I like the idea of traveling the world and experiencing new things, new places and just having fun while doing it.
I’ve been thinking about a bucket list of places I want to go before I die, not that I’m going to die tomorrow, but who knows what might happen. So far the places that rank pretty high on the list are all of South America, Antarctica, more of Asia and all of Africa. Someone asked me the other day if I had a million dollars what would I do with it? My answer is simple, pay off the debt I have and the debt some other folks I know have, put my things in a pack and head out for the first place on the bucket list. Life is too short to be taken seriously, you need adventure to make your life worth living. I’m not saying traveling and living out of a backpack is what you should do, but you shouldn’t be 100% comfortable with your life, there should be something to keep you on your toes, after all isn’t the point of life to live?
