I 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.
