The modern nomadic life suites my conflicted and contradictory personality so well I'm not sure I'll ever be able to fully commit to a life lived in one place again. I have a real need to see the land that surrounds me, the places I feel well beyond me, and I love being taken from any known element and seeing a world of wonder laid sprawling before me. I love returning to places I've know and seeing them with new eyes.
Then there are the days when I feel that mild agoraphobic need to stay hidden, and not go anywhere. How lucky am I to have both the safety (however imagined) of my little house on wheels and the freedom to move that satisfies the courage and creativity of my spirit.
Today Nora and I spent some time outside painting. Here is a funny little painting I did of Nora.
