Full disclosure honest post today folks: I am going a bit stir crazy. It’s been almost an entire year now where my lovely wife and I have not been able to work, travel, or live anything that remotely resembles the life we once lived. I know my story is a common one, that hundreds of thousands of people could tell, but it’s mine all the same. We’re at almost a year without a normal paycheck, literally, almost a year since we’ve shot our last wedding, almost a year since we’ve boarded a plane, train, or hell, even an automobile to do our work. I am quite honestly running in place, and I’m running out of ways to pretend I’m not positively aching for what was once my normal life.
There is beauty to doing the same things over and again, hiking the same trails, waking in the same bed, but I am desperate for adventure once more. I am so ready to be off the rails, seeing the world, seeing all of you wonderful souls inside it. I am ready, and I know I must be patient, but I am ready.
I'm running in place,
only seeing what I've seen.
Let me off the rails.

Hang in there! I completely feel you...the monotony drones on and it takes work to find the joy in the constantly small bubble in which we dwell. I haven’t traveled for nearly a year, which is a first for me as a regular international traveler, and I even have a new nephew I have yet to meet in person...the way things are going, he might be a year old before that happens! I’ve taken to trying to do something every day outside my comfort zone...walking the dog a new route, looking up something online that I’m curious about but know nothing of, or even wearing all the beautiful clothes I love even though I’m not going anywhere. The ache for adventure doesn’t go away, so I try to use the restlessness to inform new parts of myself. Here’s to a boundless world waiting to reveal its wonder once again!🥂
Like Groundhog day every moment here. I have lots of wonderful things at home to do and read and learn and play but no motivation to do them. Its like being on a treadmill going nowhere. At my elderly age I was planning to travel and visit family but feel like time is running out for me. You all youngsters will get threw this, but for some of us, maybe not. Blessings all.
