Never did I think I'd fall in love with a landscape so stark. The desert has this quietness to it, a kind of magic you feel in the air. Cacti trees that have personalities of their own, rocks that make up imaginary creatures. Driving through Joshua Tree feels like exploring some foreign planet. My favorite places make me feel big and small all at once, your worries dissolve while your sense of belonging and oneness expands. An unexpected yet perfect escape.
I'm so happy I got to experience this beautiful place while I could. Because *tam tam tam tam* ((drum noises)) I'm moving to New York! Waa, I know crazy. I only just got to the West Coast and I love the ocean, nature, hikes... But here's the thing, I can always come back! Right now I'm young and it's time to explore. I'm reading this book called The Name of The Wind, it's a story about an anti-hero named Kvothe. As a kid, he's part of the Edema Ruh artist troupe when demons strike and he's left to fend for himself. Anyways, in this one part he says how Ruhs are not meant to stay in one place. That's how I feel about my life. In fact, I'm convinced I was a nomad in a past life. Moving around and experiencing new places and peoples makes me feel like the best version of myself. Happy, full of energy, inspired and in love with life.
Andrew, Astro kitty and I are hitting the road in a week!
