remain unmoving

Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself?

–Lao Tzu

leave it all behind

Img_3891I can sit on the balcony and watch Tom and spend hours painting pieces of driftwood and rocks. To me, that’s what travel should be: Going to a place where you can shed your skin…the weights and obligations, the emotional lives of all the people I love—I can leave it all behind. The part of my personality where I have to provide everything for everybody in my life—that goes away. I don’t feel it there.
