That’s how what I wondered this morning, exploring a snow covered forest on the east coast.
At one point as I was climbing over a log, I stepped on a branch causing a loud cracking sound. The noise scared a fox who bolted out of a burro on my right and ran far up the next hill. His rapid movement spooked a group of deer who set off to the right as the fox veered to the left. The moment was beautiful and I experienced it because I chose to step off the paved path.
I’m not sure what I’m going to achieve or if I’ll survive this year of working and traveling, but with 4 months down and 8 to go, I’m hopeful for more unexpected experiences on this unfolding adventure.
Today, I feel like I’m really living after years of just getting by.
