Walkabout, vision quest or just running away

My posts of late have been limited to uttering of others; memorable, no doubt, but reflecting the empty space where my own thoughts should be.
I’ve obviously denied myself a few new adventures…and so, I’m off (perhaps off my nut, some of these adventures are taking place in Beaumont, Texas…in August…without air conditioning).
My journeys begin at the end of July in the mountains of Georgia and Tennessee; a two week stay in spiritual retreat at the monastery in Beaumont. Beyond that…
I hope to find stories, hear stories and share stories…all I’ve ever really wanted to do; no destination in particular aside from peace (within), good fishing spots (catching optional) and loving each day and myself again.
I’ve a little less than three weeks to limit my worldly possessions to what will fit in a Toyota Corolla. I feel a bit like the time traveler in Wells’ The Time Machine.
There is, of course, the limited fishing gear, backpack, tent, sleeping bag and on…what tools?, what books?
There are a couple of things on the old bucket list I hope to scratch off: 1) Fall in love with a new city. 2) Jump out of a plane (voluntarily)
I would settle for hang gliding in place of #2
Peace out pilgrim

I am surrounded by books with great, even heroic quotes, grand philosophies and theologies, mysteries and wonderments. I've never met an author of any. Oh what a finer person I would be if I had raised my voice above the pounding of the sea with Cicero, walked with Saul on that road to Damascus and on and on and on. Well, I didn't. But I've met some pretty swell people that had something to say...and they're all related to me; they're My Family Jewels.
