This is the map of the world that E constructed for me before I left for my big trip. When I get home from a day at the office I stare at it and try to remember that there is a whole big world out there apart from the rat race, paying bills and worrying about what to wear the next day.
I like having a home base: Being able to sleep in the same bed every night, making coffee in my kitchen and talking to friends on my cell phone is comforting. But I also love the endless possibilities of the open road. I know that once I get back on my feet, Iíll be a traveler for lifeóas long as I always have a place that I can call home.
