Another Our of the Way Place

“What do you do?” I’ve always found it a little depressing that the expected answer to this very open question is a career or at least a job of some sort. I do lots of things. To to define myself as a writer (or even worse a lawyer) seems to be doing a huge part of my inner-being an injustice.

Be that as it may, there are certain activities that I enjoy and that I’ve dedicated a lot of time to, among them photography.

Floating City

The weeks of travel I had first planned have now turned into years.  Friends and strangers often ask me if I get tired from all the traveling.  I don’t know if I get tired, but there are times when I feel one part of my life has been neglected at the expense of another. A life of continuous travel, constantly surround by new friends and new places, makes balance a rarely achieved ideal.  As a result I’ve found my mind hungering for stimulation and challenge, something more satisfying than the small plaques that adorn displays in museums, more involved than the writing of a one-page post.
