Parked in a field, amongst the scurry of Walmart and torrential thunderstorms, I find happiness. Today seems like a good day to stay mellow after yesterday’s adventures. A leaky roof, some good literature, and a wandering fly keep me company inside my caravan. The weather is dictating the mood; spooky, yet mystical. A coal train passes by, symbolic of my will to keep on. Although unlike the train who’s rails prescribe a path, my journey meanders through a field of unpredictability. Everything I have is pointed toward the land of the stranger. My soul searches to answer questions about our world, and what it means to be human. Throughout this journey, the peaks and valleys of my energy ride waves of intuitive feelings. With each oscillation an overarching moral of presence begins to uncover itself, while each answer I find seems to prompt more questions. What else is there to find along the way?
Albert Einstein once said: “The pursuit of beauty and truth is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives” If you observe a curious child, or remember what it was like to be young and full of wonder, then you may feel resonance with Einsteins words. An intense and beautiful curiosity glows inside the heart when we listen to what it has to say. An awakened heart becomes an organ of perception leading our sphere of activity down a path of wondrous discovery.
Let the adventures begin. This is my first home, rent and mortgage free. With everything I need to live she’s 13 feet of freedom, and will throw me into the field of pure potentiality to chase my dreams. As an exercise of detaching myself from materialism, and a project of sustainability, she definitely has some lessons to teach me. Some might ask if my home has a backyard, and now I can say, it’s everywhere! #offthegrid
