Introduction To Our Journey’s Flow

This once was on the welcome page and I have moved it here in Reflections. When first deciding on whether or not to begin a travelogue I wrote this.

Today a new introduction page is becoming necessary in my mind for no other reason other than it just seems like a good thing to do.

 

The Breeze…

We felt a breeze that had begun many years ago and wondered why we had ignored it for so long. Our “Little B” had been whispering for us to pay attention but we were too distracted to hear. Both Deborah and I have reached a beautiful meadow at a wonderful moment in our lives and for the first time are actually paying attention to the little breeze that began so many years ago.

The wilderness has always been our common passion and we have always spoken of long and distant journeys of discovery. This year felt the first step towards our goal of not just reading about the adventures of someone else but to spread the dust of our travels across the land as well.

First we must remove the clutter we have acquired over the years. The possessions and mental clutter that cages us all. We began with a cabin… a cabin in the woods. We call it OLUS which stands for, “Our Lighten Up Spot”. And it will serve as our learning field. OLUS is quite simply our introduction to a simpler way of life, one that many are now migrating towards. I feel impelled to avoid the term “Tiny House” because it is becoming quite commercialized now. People have once again found a way to greedily exploit something beneficial and convert it to monetary gain and corporate profit.

So what was as a simple breeze has now reach our cabin in the woods, transformed into a wind of change. Blowing the colorful maple leaves towards a new purpose and inspiring us to do the same. Our journeys flow continues and we look forward to experiencing new places and welcoming new friends to our campfire…

Longway is the trail name for Tim Todd and is quite fitting due to the fact that every aspect of his life consist of taking the longest route and time to arrive. For Longway the journey is the destination.
