My posting pauses seem to be getting longer and more frequent, but I have a good excuse this time. I have been looking around for a new area to live. I live in the suburbs which is as noisy as a city without all the conveniences of city, so I thought I should just move to a city (Sydney.) When I went to the city to look for an apartment I spent the whole time in my hotel room sick, so I took it as a sign that Sydney isn’t the place for me right now. I probably look for signs that aren’t really there and place too much importance on feelings but that’s just how it is for me.
Anyway, I have one more area to explore next week and if that doesn’t work out I’m going to travel the world for a year or two or three. It’s a place called Bellingen, which is a quiet little place close to the beach and lots of good walking trails.
If Bellingen doesn’t work for me I plan to visit lots of art museums around the world. Starting with Italy, then France, Spain, England, maybe Germany and possibly the United States. I would just stay in each place until my visa expired, so it wouldn’t be a rushed trip. Flying anywhere from Australia is a loooong flight so when I land somewhere I’m never in hurry to get back on a plane.
I’m challenged by the burden of freedom. I have no responsibilities holding me down in any one place, I have been saving for a rainy day, and I have a job that can be done anywhere in the world. Every week I seem to have a new plan and a whole new direction, but each new week seems to create a more interesting plan. So I spend my time thinking about life while life marches on around me.
