It's going to happen. it's just a question a when. The problem is with so many concrete goals flying around that I'm either in the midst of or on the cusp of starting where does this fit in? I love what I'm doing, and wouldn't want to drop everything, but the idea of traveling from place to place just writing, drawing, and meeting who's out there-it's a lifestyle I could happily embrace.
What's delaying it isn't money or impetus-I want to know that I'll have the self control to actually write and draw on a daily basis. Until I can prove that to myself, I haven't earned the right to travel the world. In the meantime I'm still discovering so much of LA, even 2 years after moving here. Between that and the teaching job I had, that took me to 5 random cities a month, I've done a good job in the kiddie pool variety of free travel.
You can travel the world for less money than you spend each month to fill up your gas tank.
The idea that travel is expensive and difficult is bullshit peddled by tour companies, hotel chains and corporate media.
It can be scary to venture into the world with nothing more than optimism and good-will, but personal freedom begins with a leap of faith.
