So nice to be home

So 3 months on the road is a long time, much loner than I have ever done before. It has been quite interesting, nice to have Rosemary to share it with, and nice to have seen the country. I keep thinking back to certain smells like the smell of the desert, forest, lakes, rivers, and cities. It is nice to be home.

So for me, this trip has been simply about seeing new places and taking advantage of the time that I have to do so. I have decided that I will more than likely be traveling like this for the rest of my life, if my plans continue. It is nice to have a home that is located in a city that has an airport that support world travel. I am exploring job opportunities but taking my time. It is nice to be able to do so.

So maybe this is how I communicate and therapize (is this a word?) myself. In Honduras I wrote in a journal. Many other times I have gone inward and listened to music or engulfed myself in the gym or with substance misuse. So these days I choose to write. It does me good. I appreciate this outlet, even though some of you may think I am up and down and all over the place. I guess that is kind of how my life has been all along, all over the place. I get bored with one thing, I change. Change is good and I am good at changing things that I can control.

Next weekend I am going to take part in a ceremony. What kind of ceremony, ceremony with medicinal plants and a female shaman that has healed many people around the world. It is just my latest step into the unknown. I am excited about it and look forward to sharing. I have heard nothing but good things about the healings that take place, even if they are tough to go through. Rosemary is excited for me to be involved. So we'll see how it goes. I am also going to our 15 year high school reunion. That will be next Saturday. Not much else to say other than it is nice to be home and to be able to spend time with family and friends.
