Do you ever have those spells where you just feel really alive? Where you're ravishing good music and everything tastes better and you're curious and engaged and people who cut you off in traffic just don't seem to matter all that much? When you battle wanderlust as you sit paying mundane bills or replying to even more mundane emails? Glimpses of hiking around Big Sur, wandering aimlessly around Nashville, or paddling through Vietnam pop up when you least expect them to? Travel and travel companions and the grand itch of spring when change and possibility seem to linger in the air: that's where we find ourselves today.
