“Blossom by blossom the spring begins.”
— Algernon Charles Swinburne
Speaking of spring …. makes me think of change …. speaking of change … makes me think of adventure … speaking of adventure … makes me think of the old dreams I used to have … speaking of old dreams … makes me remember how I envisioned who I would be when I grew up.. speaking of growing up … makes me remember that I possibly never have and possibly never will… and THAT.. IS … OK!!!
Back to the topic of change and spring. New beginnings and reflections on the changes I have experienced in my life. Countries, peoples, places, foods, and drinks. Adventures.. I love change. Change is the only thing that stays the same in my life. It’s that time of day, week, month, and year. I am off again on a new adventure. I am super excited by this new opportunity … I present to you Equatorial Guinea..
“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
Some people will never understand what I like about my life. Sometimes I do not understand. I am sometimes homesick.. missing family, friends, and consistency. On the other hand, I live for these adventures. I always hope that folks will come to visit me and share in my adventure but also understand when they chose not to and even why they do not.
“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown”
― H.P. Lovecraft, Supernatural Horror in Literature
Some feel I am crazy for living this life.. and maybe I am .. but I still love it. I live for it and look forward to sharing it with whoever in whatever manner they want to appreciate it. Raise a cup to the crazy ones!!
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
