What if you decided to go on a journey and never return?
Would you write about it along the way?
What would you wear, what kind of clothing, what kind of shoes?
And if you could only carry along three items, what would they be?
It doesn't matter where you're going; a journey will always change you.
It doesn't matter if it's a literal journey or a journey inside yourself, movement of any kind creates change.
Change causes fear and anxiety because it's always about the unknown.
Helen Keller said, 'avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.'
On January 1, 1953 Mildred Lisette Norman, the Peace Pilgrim, set off on a personal pilgrimage for peace. She was in her mid forties when she began her walk. Over the course of 28 years she walked more than 25,000 miles, touching the hearts, minds and lives of thousands of people all across North America. She went on a journey from which she never returned.
Hers is a fascinating story.

If you were to set out on a pilgrim's walk, what would it look like?
Life is a journey.
Life is change.
As I journey through life, I write.

If I went on a journey I would take my mesa "medicine bundle" that is my personal medicine altar.
