Paso a paso

Crying my eyes out on a bus from Muxìa back to Santiago. Tears of happiness, sadness, exhaustion, disbelief... everything in between. September 21-October 30th...40-days. Life was hard yet simple. Wake, eat, follow yellow arrows, wash, rest, repeat. Officially transitioning from the Camino de Santiago to Camino Del Vida... Read More

and I would walk 500 miles...

Over the past two years I've traveled, studied, rode rickshaws, trains, planes, surfed, sat, laughed, loved, said goodbyes, circumambulated, paused, cried, practiced, spiraled in samsara, reflected, projected, prostrated, sat some more, ate loads of curd, rice, dhal, chapatis & churros, prayed, practiced, shaved my head, rode a camel, sat, sat, sat, and sought a little more...

Let it grow, let it go.

Well hair has been on my mind lately as I now have longer hair under my armpits than on on my head. Yup, in a moment of clarity mixed with spontaneity I decided to shave my head. Read More
