What am I doing?
Spending all my money on travel, that’s what. Even though some trips are business-related and I don’t have to pay for the big things (travel and hotel, for example), trips are still expensive. And, of course, some trips are personal, so I do have to pay for anything.
I absolutely love traveling. It feeds my need for adventure. Staying in one place all the time bores me silly. Yet some people close to me don’t want to leave their hometown. They’re perfectly content. I bet they actually save money. Wish I had that habit.
But the habit I do have, the addiction I do have, must be satisfied. So I travel.
A week from tomorrow I’m in NYC for six days. Ten days after returning home I leave for
Last year I took a day off for a cousin’s death. And even though the occasion was sad, it was still a time of smiles and laughter. My extended family is so cool, and so weird, ya gotta love them.
A friend just emailed and said, “Seems like you don’t hold still longer than a minute.” I don’t appear hyper in a micro sense, but in a macro sense I sure am. I think that’s one reason I’m really good at trauma work. It certainly causes an adrenaline rush, but in the meantime I’m really helping people.
