I know I’ve changed over the years, and hopefully, for the better. But one thing I hope to never change is my love for other cultures, and along with that, the sense that I could be planted anywhere in the world and still be in my happy place. Anything of consequence is relational by its very nature. In my case, it’s with others who share an enthusiasm for life, those who, on the surface, appear to be an alpha to my omega. Caution is not a word I relate well to, and on occasion my stubbornness has led me into situations and places that perhaps I should have avoided. But then I think of the people that would not be in my life today had I not taken the opportunity placed before me, as well as the experiences that now contribute loads of material to this “want to be” writer. I’m not rushing toward the edge of the cliff, but neither am I taking a slow boat to China.
