Travel as Meditation
I decided to change my point of view about being a lonely solo traveller. Instead I´m thinking of everything--the sites, churches, food, photo-ops, etc. as a backdrop to go deeper into myself--my thoughts--my dreams. Rather than going to a retreat center in some isolated spot, I use the challenges of figuring out where to go, what to see, what to eat as the process for engaging my easily distracted mind. Whatever conversations that come are a bonus rather than things I clamor for. So much better!
