wow, you are living my dream life! Very inspirational. I can't take off and wander just now but someday I fully plan to. I hope your journey gives you all you hope for, so far it looks like a glorious success! You and your man are stunning!
Chris, I think you've got life figured out more than most. Live life + Live love. Every time I think of you, I want to get rid of all the meaningless stuff I've collected... you're helping me purge my crap and you're not even here. Bravo!! I'm sure Dave will thank you!
Can't wait to see all your pics, the ones you've posted are teasing.... I can only image what you've got so far. When will you be up north? We'll be in the Yukon in August sometime... meet up maybe?
until then, have a blast! drink a coconut for me.
putting together some “fine art” prints, some of them are all dreamy and often make me think of you
the yukon is still a possibility, as is all else :)
do you miss your family?or do you like being the free nomad that you are?
hmm, good question.
i love my family of course and rely on them tremendously when i am near them, but i find that i kind of form my own new family wherever i am, and become so important to me that the void is filled and somehow makes it completely comfortable to be so far away from “real” family.
ha! you are too funny....good for you mother nature's child. peace love and all that your tribe stands for. why are you getting all worked up over someone you don't know? don't even answer them. keep digging up the earth and plant your veggies. just live in the now. PEACE OUT
agreed. i should have just let it go, but i got worked up. human nature? it felt equally as satisfying and ridiculous writing that response. i am far from a perfect being, and have had moments of feeling like a huge ass for the critical things i wrote. i have no idea who that person is, or what their struggle is that would induce such dislike towards me. but what is done is done, and it was kind of funny at the moment. as i struggle to be a better and happier person, i wish the same for all beings of this earth.
no need to get all huffy and defensive.....truth hurts girl.....
to answer your spiteful question, i recycle all my garbage and items still worth using such as clothes/household goods i donate to those in need.
you and your squatter friends are polluting up the environment with your unambitious ways...
use your time wisely there by volunteering somewhere where the need is great and stop laying in your hammock most of the day.....
i have enjoyed following your blog when i thought you were really going to take a great road trip...started out full of fun and interesting then once you landed in key west it all started to go down hill....got hooked up and became complacent....too bad....
exactly what truth might you be talking about?
even though i have no need to justify anything to you, i do find this incredibly amusing so i will respond to your completely ignorant rant here:
first of all you pretentious know nothing elitist snob… my days are spent far from lying in a hammock, in fact the hammock has been pulled out exactly one time this entire trip. secondly, i do volunteer my time here. we have been helping out at the community garden to revamp their compost system, and have been collecting food waste and making sure it gets composted instead of going to the dump. thirdly, i spend a large portion of my days tending to the gardens at the the local organic restaurant where i am in the process of turning their untended flower beds into space to grow food bearing plants. on top of those things i make artwork on a regular basis and have some pieces hanging in a local gallery here. i also spend a substantial amount of time helping the guys with their coconuts. i contribute much more than i take, i have wonderful friends and a great little community here. i consume no meat or animal by products, about 90% of the food i eat is organic and i put a lot of energy into being a better person and making this world a better place.
and really, what if i did spend my days lying in a hammock…how does that harm anything or anyone? how am i a better person by being on a road trip as opposed to being in one place? your priorities dear stranger are so ass backwards it hurts me think about the values by which you choose to live.
also, who is squatting? and where? i would ask you to fill me in with your seemingly self proclaimed all-knowing wisdom, except that i care to hear nothing more from you.
i sincerely hope you find some joy in your life and stop taking out your frustration about your own existence on some random person on the internet who is simply living her life, causing no harm to you or anyone else and is most likely contributing to this planet and the people around her on a much more consistent and sincere basis than many.
