Shall I compare myself to a bubbling spring? I am irrepressibly effervescent. Pure and deep, and bought bottled for the low price of $1.99!
I graduated with a BA in Art and Art History. Everything I read tells me this is a horrendous mistake. Just one of life's little adventures, right?
Was in China for a year and a half, teaching adorable, impressionable Chinese babies full time at an English immersion pre-school.
Volunteering and traveling around the States while I plan my trip to India.
Of the long road
“When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.”
D. H. Lawrence
“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.”
“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”
