On the Road Again
September 18, 2009


What would today hold?  haven´t walked in a few days so… I think while I slept PACK and the feet together to scheme.  PACK is solved as the reduced weight is perfect.  (YAY ME!)  we were able to go up and down hills no problem.  But I told you PACK was devious… so while I was asleep last night they got together (damn those feet, I have been so good to them with all of the lotions and potions throughout the years, how dare they throw me under the bus) and made a deal.  Feet were killing me.  So PACK and Feet won the day.

I walked 10 miles of the most glorious paths, which reminded me so of Ireland.  then I thought of home… damn… Since yesterday I have been quite homesick.  Been that way my whole life…. so then I started to think about what was home to me really?  And what exactly was I missing.. I immediately thought of where I live in new Orleans, where my stuff is (no not the storage unit) and I thought I love that place but is that really what I am missing?  Then I thought out my immediate family.. they live in Texas and that´s not home so can´t be that… Then I thought of the stuff on my back, ok not exactly home but it is all the stuff I have in the world right now.. so kind home… but I have no where to stop for more than 1 day.. this trip consists of everyday a different city (town) and a different bed meeting different people so no home here either…

Then I thought what is the one thing I really have all the time – me.. I remembered I am my home.. I must learn that the only way to never feel homesick again is to be(come) my own home.  I am home wherever I am.  Feeling a bit better already.  home sweet home I am… look I bathed today so that is literally true.  ha!
