I have some fond memories of Birch Bay, Washington. Not the least of which is doing a Polar Bear swim on New Years day of 1996. Ouch. I was one of the lucky ones that didn’t get hypothermia.

Travel is not just moving over the earth from one place to another in some kind of conveyance. It’s not about where you’re going or how you’re getting there. It’s not about getting away from it all, at all. In fact, more the opposite … a way of getting to it all. Travel is a metaphor for life, a way of experiencing it more intensely and self-consciously. Traveling is not so much an action as an enlightened state of consciousness, opening you to fresh experience, to fresh looks at the world and yourself in it.
