Beign away from family/friends
Mostly supportive, but many think I’m crazy and that I’ll never do it.
Bare essentials – clothes, shoes, journals, camera film (maybe), sleeping bag/hammock.
Don’t know – that’s the whole point for me, any change is good change, as long as it’s conscious, honestly critiqued, and truthful to who you are.
Confidence and heart.
Boring and it’s what everybody else does.
To fulfill old dreams and create new ones.
Dream and save money.
