A Good Traveller Expects Nothing and Finds Everything: June 2011
I was couch-surfing in Barcelona and found myself living in the home-studio of a Spanish musician. On a relaxed summer afternoon, watching the sun bathe the living room in golden light, I felt centred, blessed and content.
This drawing of Joe’s living room transports me to that moment when so many cherished things about travel came together: Travelling with a few belongings, few attachments and fewer expectations; the noticing of, and being fully present in, ephemeral moments that powerfully transform me; being open in my explorations of the outside world, returning home to find the inner one polished. Everything falls in place, everything is enriching and everything helps me grow.
