A single step…

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
Lao-tzu

Here I sit at the beginning of my voyage. Six weeks of travel and adventure… it begins now, with this single step. I find myself a bit nervous, more so than I have been in past travels. Is it the scope of the voyage? Or is the uncertainty that I feel about my life at this moment? Only time will tell.

As I sit in O’Hare international airport, I look around and see the hundreds of other passengers, all heading off to different destinations, all with their own idea of their journey. I can’t help to wonder if any of them feel the rush of new adventure that awaits them. Perhaps they are returning home or perhaps they are leaving forever. Whatever the case may be, this airport is a place for transient changes. For lives to move forward or return to normal. I know where I am heading, but I don’t know what awaits. I find myself anxious to find out. I have no idea how often I will be able to update,
but I’m going to do my best.

Until soon…

  1. I think its so exciting your going away for as long as you are. I give you a lot of credit, walking into known adventures and unexpected ones along the way.

    ps as always you have an awesome way with words.

    I look forward to reading more on your trip
