Every person is on a journey. The spectrum spans the weekend warriors, part-timers, full-timers, dreamers (like me), and people forced on the road by unfortunate circumstances. I'm on the road 160-180 days a year for work which has taken me all over the world. The upside is the other half of the year is open for me to jump in a vehicle with my canine companion, Bella and see the country. I've used hotels, Airbnb, and even towed a T@g teardrop. Like many, I've dreamed of full-time nomadic life, but it's just not in the cards right now.
We may not all be able to go full-time immediately, but each of us can begin the steps toward that kind of freedom in smaller actions. Recently, I decided to trade my daily driver for a 2017 ProMaster City which I am converting into a campervan. I'm customizing a used Wayfarer Vans set. I'm especially interested in exploring the social/emotional/spiritual aspects of nomadic life: building tribes, creating meaningful relationships, spiritual routines, practicing gratitude, mindfulness, etc. - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said, "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." If that's true, how are we nourishing our spirits along the way? I hope the unfolding of my journey can connect with yours and a life-giving dialogue of appreciation and understanding can emerge.
