Thoughts on travelling

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” ~Ray Bradbury 

I got my new passport today. My old one expired in January and, because I do like going places, I went to get it renewed. It took 3 months but today I have my new passport and it's valid for 10 years. Yay!

I've been very busy these past few days (and months and maybe the past year or two). On Sunday I spent the morning at the Blue Star and in the evening we held a session at studio sharing about death and dying. I think it was an awesome way to remember my mom and her own journeys. On Monday my brother and I had a meeting to attend in town to begin planning for the 2nd International Yoga day. We decided to make most of the day an adventure because when else would we be going up to town? Our days are usually filled with classes or people and so it takes a bit to step away from that for other things. On Tuesday I had class and then the cute guy and I went to see Batman vs Superman before heading back to our studio to talk and meet with someone about signage for our space. Today I spent time getting my passport and then had to head up to town again before stopping in by my brother for a bit. 

Busyness. It's become a part of my life. Today I've been thinking about how I want to travel to different places. I find myself thinking that each day we travel - through time and space and experiences. Each day is an opportunity and, though I hope to be able to visit somewhere else soon, I'm going to work at being open to when and how things may happen. 

There are adventures ahead but also day-to-day adventures to enjoy.

peace,
Ren
