Wanderlust

“As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.”

― Herman Melville

Even for those who like to believe that they lead a life of critical self inquiry there are certain assumptions so ingrained they don’t merit the very questioning that everything and everyone else does.

I’ve been traveling nearly my entire adult life. Since age 21 I’ve never stayed anywhere more than 18 months and it seems unlikely that will change anytime soon. Even the thought of being still, being rooted in some place, gives me the chills. It’s not a fear of missing out. I’m quite often very happy knowing that something is going on nearby and not participating.
