Un mese fa, l’ultimo aereo. L’ultimo viaggio, l’ultimo posto visitato. Un mese diverso dai soliti. Le cose cambiano, passano e finiscono. Il tutto va affrontato come l’ennesima lezione che la vita ti offre, sempre guardando avanti, sempre a testa alta. E se un mese fa atterravo, oggi riparto e giustamente mi chiedo, dove sarà diretto il prossimo aereo che prenderò? #forward
Just the bare necessities of life.
We only brought one phone charger.
Packing for indefinite travel wasn't hard for us. In fact, it was exciting to have a compelling reason to go through years worth of accumulation and minimize. And after we each combed through our separate spaces and kept only our essentials, we combined those two piles and narrowed down again.
The best way to realize what you don't need is to just try living without it. Like when you’re on vacation and realize you forgot to pack face wash or a just-in-case formal outfit. You manage just fine.
Even the things we keep because they bring us joy might also be filling the space that a new joy, an experience or taste or some piece of knowledge, might fill.
I don't know what the future holds but I anticipate one day living with more than just as much as I can carry. And when that day does come, I think I'll be grateful that I went through this process and determined what I need to live a comfortable life.
and don't spend your time lookin' around
for something you want that can't be found
when you find out you can live without it
and go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true
the bare necessities of life will come to you
Life will always find its way 🕷 a scene from a fish sauce factory near Hoi An, Vietnam. I was roaming the facility, only breathing through my mouth in all honesty, when I almost missed this little one here. #whereisguz
