I need to pull away from life sometimes. I don’t think it is distracting myself from life as much as escaping. It could be a long wandering walk in the woods, or laying on the beach with a book and ending up letting the sun and wind put me to sleep, or walking in circles in a distant city,
My life has been moving rather fast lately. Moving out of my little apartment, moving to Geneva, visiting Paris, now the World Health Assembly, next weekend Barcelona. I am meeting such amazing people. When that happens I start to wonder, what do I have to offer? I don’t really have a tribe here. I suppose I don’t really have a tribe anywhere. I wander partly because I have nothing to tie me down. I need to find a community here, even if it is just for a little bit.
How does one create community? Most the time I think I am so much in my head, I cant keep up with the world around me. I suppose that’s a habit we must all avoid. So here is my plan- get up, go to work, come home via the lake and walk and talk to someone. Then come home and plan to rent a bike next week to explore more. Its hard to get a routine when things are so busy, but Ill find a yoga around here and perhaps run or ride and get out of this interior place I seem to have created by default,
