Thank you for visiting my site. This blog will document my tour of the Americas and I welcome you to share the trip through my photos and writing. The documentation begins in North America, from the dusty towns of Arizona. I begin my first international exploration by entry into Mexico. From Mexico, I will journey through Central and South America. How will a (U.S. American woman) execute such a plan? To the cynics out there (the earlier parentheses emphasize what skepticism I’m up against) you may assume I have a death-wish. To that, I say, I will carry out the tour by using the resources available, going with instinct, and having the wisdom to know neither of those are reliable.
There are several goals for this documented tour. I will share my reflections of life and include my observations of cultural systems. My first bike tour across the agricultural lands of the United States inspired me to investigate sustainable systems. I understand that developing nations have impacts that may drive our finite resources into scarcity. As I discover more diversity, it may inspire me as a designer of systems. As for a spiritual quest, I hope to expand my consciousness and explore the sense of unlimited possibilities. I want to help people. I want to believe they will help me.
I hope my experience may serve a purpose. The project will explore environmental concerns, innovation, and challenging discrimination. My writing intends to push the limits of what we believe by pushing my limits. What I want us to learn is that citizens south of the border are peaceful, that women can travel alone, and to go for our dreams!
Perhaps after traveling the world, I may better define my relation to it. I seek the truth.
I am growing happier every day, exploring life and its wonders. This blog here, is a medium for everyone to share with me.
“Every kind of ignorance in the world all results from not realizing that our perceptions are gambles. We believe what we see and then we believe our interpretation of it, we don’t even know we are making an interpretation most of the time. We think this is reality.” – Robert Anton Wilson
