Immersions In Wanderlust

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson”

My “Traveler’s Mind” draws positive energy from the unexpected place. Allow me to step into worlds where I have freedom of choice to explore on these terms without fear of safety or physical confinement. Having these parameters in mind, I describe five of my globetrotting aspirations for the upcoming decade.

I wish to experience the serenity of Buddhism surrounded by green mountains in a Tibetan monastery. Listening to the healing tones of music bowls and meditative chanting, my physical and emotional health can be nurtured.

I desire to jump high in the air again with the Maasai Tribe of Kenya as their happy faces fill my mind with unconditional acceptance. Their sacred cows will surround me as a reminder that animals should have rights as humans do.

I aspire to tango into the night with my wife in Argentina to teach me to be feel romantic as I grow older. The evening will conclude with a sip of mate tea in the company of Argentinian scholars.

I feel the urge to walk among iguanas and sea tortoises in the Galapagos Islands, who have little to fear of the human kind. With my curiosity about the isolation of this land enhanced, I will climb to the remnants of an ancient volcano to embrace the geological evolution that has taken place there.

As a longtime resident of South Florida, I rarely experience the passing of seasons. My love of nature motivates me to finish a novel in a lonely, Colorado cabin as the beauty of each month surrounds me in unanticipated wonder.

  1. This is beautiful, I really loved the night in Argentina with your wife and the experiencing the serenity of Buddhism surrounded by mountains. Your writing made my heart long for life, thank you…Have you visited the masai tribe of Kenya?

  2. Last week I wanted to write about my bucket list and I couldn’t think of something original. Thanx for reminding me my previous dreams: Learning how to dance tango and a trip to Africa. Kenya sounds fine πŸ™‚ And if you miss season changes, welcome to Switzerland πŸ™‚ but not this year, maybe next one will be colder and snowy
