Life's Greatest Adventure
Life is an ADVENTURE. At least that is how I choose to see it. Some days the path of life is laid out before us as clear and wide as the Champs Elysees on a bright summer day. Other days it’s like you’re scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef on a moonless night and your light burns out. If you walk out your front door and travel beyond your comfort zone; a myriad of color, culture, wisdom and a little bit of serendipity will find you.
Travel is scary. It is exhilarating, exhausting, and moving. Moving, beyond what you thought possible. Moving, in a way that nothing else is. Becoming a parent is all of these things and so much more.
I’ve embarked on life’s GREATEST ADVENTURE! And I thought jet-lag after 4 flights and 3 lengthy layovers to Yangon was brutal. I laugh in the face of jet-lag now!
Becoming a parent is a bit like wondering through the maze of narrow streets in Fez’s medina. There are no maps, it’s super dirty, everyone is trying to sell you something, and good luck navigating your way through it. Yet it is so beautifully intoxicating, you revel in being lost and can’t wait to see what’s around the next corner.
Nothing can prepare you for this grand ADVENTURE. It is awe inspiring and humbling, with the most breathtaking view. It has brought me to my knees and given me wings. Of any blessing in life and love, this is the GREATEST. So here’s to many more years of life, love, travel and GREAT ADVENTURES.
FYI. Yes, I did fall of the face of the Earth, but I’m BACK now! So watch out world! Now I have a side-kick...albeit pint size.
