Tribe of Wayfarers & The Tao of “living right”

“Friends remind us of who we truly are.”

It seems with every passing day these words gain new meaning. I blush to think how lucky I am for the friends in my life–for they constantly reassure me and egg me on, as if a silly childhood challenge: “go on, I dare you–you be you. See how you you can be…”

Any my what a challenge that is! Isn’t it curious? The thing that should come so naturally is in fact so elusive… Why is this? How did it come to be this way? Has it always been so..?

We often talk of “being grounded,” but how do we understand and what is implied by this phrase? In the sense of physics gravity effects us all the same.

My Invitation

‘Allo Love &¬†Welcome to the LiveRightTravelFar.com blog!

This is where I record travel explorations, musings, and my attempts at insight and inspiration as I gallivant across SE Asia and beyond. It’s also a way for us to keep in touch, continue sharing ideas and exchanging experiences.

With that in mind, let’s make a deal: I’ll write and you write back. I know, I know… It sounds a bit old-fashioned. Creating a dialogue? Actually corresponding? Putting ideas, critical thought, questions and parsing out your own story sounds like work but that’s the deal.

Whether you’re an old friend from way back, an acquaintance from passing lives, or new connection who has crossed the great digital divide you’re invited: You’re invited to share, read, offer comment, challenge me back, introduce your own learnings and stories. You’re welcome.

Let’s talk, let’s communicate, let’s stay in touch.
