So here I am….
Another third world country
Another dollar a day attitude
What keeps me on those planes high above it all?
Why do I search after I have found only to search again?
How will I know when to stop and smile and sit and write and build?
Who will tell me what to do?
I have just begun my new big adventure in Latin and South America.
Today I am hurtling toward the Carribian coast of Costa Rica in search of white beaches and coral reef eye candy.
The beach will undoubtedly be beautiful and I will breathe calming breaths as I always do.
The question is: Is this enough?
Is Paradise unshared Paradise?
Sure, there are hundreds of travelers that I meet every day and we all share a sly grin that we are here and others are not, but that is a game of chance and the thread of adventure is tenuous in the so-far somber 21st century.
Over the next 3 months I am going to dive, literally and figuratively, into the depths of this earth.
I will come back with an answer.
It is simply…..Time.
