Song of the Open Road

Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road.

~ Walt Whitman
1819 - 1892

Hello there!  I live in the beautiful state of Arizona, which makes me very lucky. I'm married to my best friend, which makes me even luckier,  I believe in kindness, humility, generosity, self-reliance and being true to yourself. I love strong coffee, crisp mornings, discovering new places, traveling empty roads, hearing the coyotes singing, creating beautiful things, and dogs. I absolutely hate trolls and public speaking.  So, yeah, that pretty much sums me up!
