Starting out, I am always filled with expectation.
Even if I’ve traveled this way before.
Not that I love to be “On the road”. On the contrary, I love a settled calm life at home among the things that compose my nest, and when I travel the most incredible assortment of accoutrements must come along, bringing the nest. Perhaps a better image is a turtle, rather than a bird which seems to be able to sleep anywhere!
I think perhaps it is the idea that enthralls me. Adventure. With a capital A! Something (most anything) might happen. The scent of the ocean, the sound of the trees rustling. Sunrise walks and sunsets captured, and if I am truly fortunate I will feel the mist from the rain as I half sleep on a porch while listening to a falling symphony.
So as soon as the shell (Yes, I changed metaphors) is packed, the errands run, and all other adventurers are loaded, we will commence. We will keep you informed along the Way!
