I thought I would give you all a little tour of my Jeep, Ringo, and where I’ve been camping for the past week. I’m not very good with the vlogging stuff but, to be honest, I don’t want to. Ha! I’d like to stick with blogging.
So, I did leave California once again. I wanted to be practical and “responsible” a couple of months ago by going back to picking up the same job and the same shit I left a year ago, only to be reminded of why I left the first time.
To me, the sense of freedom and independence are the most important aspects of my life. When I feel restricted or a sense of obligation, I lose sight of who I am and then things get stupid and I end up feeling like I’m wasting my time. So, basically, I would rather sleep in my very own Jeep than to deal with other people’s shit under their roof. And in California, it’s very difficult to afford your own place. My finances became its worse over the last year, just because I wanted my own place. So I’m outtie, until I can really afford to go back.
Since the cost of living in Cali is extremely expensive, my intentions is to find somewhere outside of California to start a new life. I would like to learn about horses, learn to play the piano, meet new people who I deeply resonate with and hopefully find a house to buy where I can grow my own garden, have enough yard space to own a couple of dogs and have a lot of privacy to read and meditate during the day and then rock out and sing to my dogs at night! Ha! I may also decide to go back to school and finish my BA in Philosophy as a means in itself, not a means to an end.
This all sounds out of my reach at the moment because I’m completely unclear of how to make it happen. But I’m optimistic about it all and that’s why I’m here in Sedona: to gain clarity about the next step to take, just like I did back in June of this year. What an exciting road trip that was and I plan to do it again next summer!
Anyways, I moved whatever is left of my stuff into storage back home in Southern California, near my sister, so I can go scout where to begin a new life. I’m thinking here in Arizona or Texas. We shall see. But in the meantime, I’m just camping in my Jeep, doing some solo hiking in the area, working out at the gym and then ending the day with taking a nice hot shower there!
So here’s a little video clip I have from this morning when I woke up. The end of it cut off but the majority stayed. I also managed to get a shot of a hot air balloon passing by me. Anyways, enjoy!
