Go west

What quote am I vibing? "Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity." (from The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho)

What's on my mind? Sunscreen. So important.

What am I reading? Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert

How long til I'm on the road? 3 little bitty weeks

Saturday night - spent the day laughing with friends, relaxing, and napping. Then decided - why don't I draw lines on my map to make my journey west more clear. WHO DECIDED THIS TRIP WAS A GOOD IDEA???? Look at all that driving! 😜

Every red thumbs-up sticker represents a place I'll hunker down for a day, or five, or thirty. Here's the summary:

Corolla, NC (Outer Banks)

Mt. Carmel/Helfenstein, PA (Home with probable detours to DC area, NYC, Philly)

Sagamore Hills/Northfield, OH

Chicago, IL

Rapid City, SD

Loveland, CO (Ft. Collins/Denver)

Midvale, UT (Salt Lake City)

Lake Tahoe, CA

Mt. Shasta, CA

Looking at it like that is exhausting! But every journey takes place one step at a time. So they say. I haven't planned the trip back east yet. On purpose! I'd like to see what I learn along the way, and how much money, heart, and headspace I have left by the end of September.
