Carve a Path in 2015

Carve a Path in 2015

Ice, Water, Steam.... Same? Different?

Ice, Water, Steam….
Same? Different?

To start the New Year, we thought it would be fun to participate in the WordPress writing challenge: “Ice, Water, Steam…What does it mean to be the same thing, in different forms?” coupled with this week’s photo challenge: “New”.  

Same, yet different creates new.  A play on words?  An oversimplification?  Maybe. But consider the words of Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, “No man ever steps in the same river twice,  for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”

New Day in Yellowstone NP

As our travel adventures continue, I take these words to heart.  I must confess I don’t really know much about this ancient philosopher or if any of his other words-of-wisdom would resonate with me.  But these ring true in my world.

Living the gypsy life as full time RV’ers plays out like a colorful kaleidoscope of travel escapades resembling sitcoms, tear-jerkers, documentaries and all genres in between. We aren’t the same people we were when we embarked on this journey almost two years ago and yet reflections of our former selves will disembark in the future.

So, in 2015, let’s embrace life’s constant change and stick an oar in that river to choose a path and not just be swept away!

  1. Thank you so much for bringing back so many memories. I have my own pictures, sometimes of the same places, different views, etc.

    But you are definitely stepping in my shoes many times… are just spending more time in each place…..and I was always on one

    vacation or another or just passing thru & then stopped. What I believe is that so many people don’t know what they are missing because

    they have never had the desire or the curiosity, etc etc….I suppose there are those that are not called to be the exploring type or maybe

    truly not curious about what is ‘out there’…… Have you ever seen a “buttermilk sky”? Most people that I ask that of, say they have

    never heard of one…… I’m just curious about you now…;-) Happy camping & traveling & exploring….. Corinne.



  2. I found you through the Daily Post. We too are full timers, for about 3 years now. And yes, it is full of wonderful experiences. I would never go back. Well, maybe when we can’t drive anymore, but that’s years down the line.
