I've always been compelled to find something... I'm not sure what it is. I have always had this free spirit, I don't know why. I recently moved from the mountains in Oregon to Washington after a chapter of life found its ending. I finished the family portion and am back to my little back book of alphabetized, yet very random ideas of what I'd like to do. I've been on this trip since I was in elementary school, had a child and now it's time to go on. Now that there is nobody to take care of but me, I'm searching again. I've struggled in society to have a delapitated apartment to offer my son. I have $400 and trying to see where I fit in. I've always wanted to live off the land. I tried to prepare my son to something of the sort, but he is no longer with me. I would like to find that place where I can focus on personal enlightenment and tell my pesky demons to go away so that I can rise and breathe again. I would like to focus on my art and poetry and prepare for future travels abroad. But society says I cannot make it with $400 and a very old car. It does run well though! I say the world is mine, but I need to find that thread that weaves between me, society and my ultimate goal. Have any of you made it to your safe place with nearly nothing?
