i will do a slight introduction (seeing as i didn't put one in my Bio yet)
i've been travelling for about 8 years at this point.
i grew up in rural indiana, about 30 miles north of indianapolis, 6 miles outside of a small town called Zionsville
surrounded by cornfields on all sides but the left... a row of houses, then more cornfields...
moved into a larger, farther house when i was 10
and left indiana when i was 17
lived in the UK for a year (newcastle-upon-tyne)
and then returned to the USA to start exploring
... NYC, tucson, arizona, portland oregon, and the mountains of california are places i've spent long amounts of time
but since i left home at 17 i've not been in any one place more than 8 months
and in the last three years, more than three months
(other places in the usa: little rock arkansas, denver colorado, salem oregon, seattle, san francisco...)
though at this point i've been in almost all the states...
outside of the USA
i've been in south africa, china, mongolia, many places in western europe
and i'm in brazil now, as i write this.
this is my way of life
it's how i understand
it's how i teach and learn
it's how i work
what i do for myself and the world.
we all have our ways of healing and our ways of running
and they are always built into our everyday lives.
i do my best to be as honest and loving as i can
strive for integrity and compassion
and to bring that to those i meet
maybe i'll change this later
but just wanted to get a little bit of myself out there to start this...
i'll be telling tales as they happen
but also relating what happened in the past
