My daughter’s honest mental wrestling with living a life full of adventure versus one cradled with stability hones in something that many of us struggle with. Whether we are drawn to travel or the excitement of a new hobby, her post propels the reader towards his or her quest:
“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” –Robert Louis Stevenson
Sometimes I wonder if I am a shell of my former self. With age has come the desire for security and often too, at times, a fear of the unknown.
Every year, I packed my bags and ventured out, leaving behind everything that I had known and loved.
The uncertainty of life felt more certain than anything else.
