This is part one of a smallish series about living out your story. My story happens to include living overseas and traveling a lot, but it’s really about the bigger picture; about contentment, acceptance and taking our deepest desires and fashioning a life out of them.
For a long time it was enough to read about it. I could burrow into a character’s adventure and feel as if I’d been somewhere. I could ‘be’ her. I could hide behind her bookcase, help her solve the crime, skin the orchard peaches, or disappear into the museum. But the stories watered the seed of wanderlust, until it wasn’t enough to simply read about it.
and ‘read’ from the book of the dead (in as much as one can read hieroglyphics).
And I’ve only just begun.
Join me tomorrow for more….
