[Ninety Nine] longing (a selfpotrait)

I have to travel. It's been 6 months since Peru. I have got to go somewhere. My body is aching to move. To be in a new place. So many choices, to little money: Iowa, France (yes! maybe.) India, Michigan, Chicago, Peru (maybe) New York, West VA, and looks like I'll be going to Sacramento in June. But I need to experience more. I have urge to be somewhere else, to live dangerously and by the seat of my pants. It's just a matter of finding the time, the money, and the people to do it with (and that last part is harder than you think.)

And it's more than the desire to get there - it's the desire to journey, to experience, to grow, in so many ways - to get lost and feel challenged and make phone calls and look at maps (the only downside to that is pure inconvenience) and to be stretched.

PS this was supposed to be yesterday's photo (because that's when i took it) but the computer was being deplorable last night and i couldn't upload. No worries. #100 will be on today.


EDIT: Chile and China have been added to my list. Let me know if there are any other places I'm missing. =)
