To Travel is Worth any Cost or Sacrifice….

IMG_20150407_103702

This is a quote from Eat, Pray, Love. I have loved Julia Roberts since I was  young. I somehow can relate to her feelings in the movie of being confused, unsure of her footing, not knowing the direction of her own life. I somehow feel, on the grand stage of my life, there has to be more than trials, suffering, disappointment, abandonment and neglect. It’s as if I hear the Director shouting through His mega phone,  “Show me more joy! I want to see more joy! Come on, get into character…more joy!” If I’m the starring actress in my own life’s screenplay,  then I need some really good supporting roles, I need a star studded cast, in order to make the story of my life a blockbuster. I havn’t always had that support , but I went searching for it. I have some great supporting role models in my life. I am on the set, I am willing to finally play the role I have often avoided in the past. I am a wanderer…so I will travel, I am a dreamer…so I shall dream…. I am a creator…so I will create….I am inspiration…so I will inspire, I am compassion, I will seek out the suffering. Before the final act of the story of my life, I now realize, I am worthy of happiness….so I shall find joy. How will you find joy dear reader?

The Parable of the Jelly Fish….

I knew a young girl who had the dream of owning her own tank of Jelly Fish. I laughed, and couldn’t quite get her fascination, with such odd creatures. But what I did learn from her, is you can find beauty, adventure, and dreams, if your willing to put your wishes into words, and take a risk of getting stung. Unless you are fearless, in the direction of your deepest longings….you will never realize them. Every time I see a Jelly Fish now…I’m reminded of this gutsy girl, who set off in the direction of her grandest hopes….and is on her way to leading a life filled with all the things she loves, up in the San Francisco Bay area. -Wanderology Girl

Once a Year……..

There is such wisdom in this quote. It opens my mind to new ideas, people, and things. Without this openess to this vast globe I wander, I can forget the humanity I share with this intriguing, astonishing world I live on. Traveling is a gift to my soul. It awakens it, and arouses the depths of my soul. To be in touch with others and to entertain strangers may at some point bring me into the presence of angels. I wouldn’t want to risk missing that. Where will you wander dear reader?

To Only See Such Magnificence

IMG_20150330_091847

One of the mysteries of wandering that I have discovered, is that, I find beautiful creations that only bloom in certain locals. What a down right shame it would be to only see such magnificence in a magazine or picture, quite another emotion to experience this worlds variety of miracles up close and personal. This little beauty is a living creation I won’t soon forget from the Florida Keys. What will you discover dear reader?
