Travel is a place I go to find out more about myself. Life is less about holding on and more about letting go—this is a beautiful adage that I try to live by but seem to have a harder time following. I'm tied to my family and friendships, some of my favorite books, my running shoes, and my Vitamix blender. I run through a labyrinth chasing after things and people that interest me. Life is a juxtaposition of simplicity and complexity. I would love to have adventures like Kerouac and Hemingway and find the peace to absorb and express everything like the Bronte sisters.
