Alrighty Tribe! Today we’re talking about a lot in a short post. For starters, this southeast Asian sun has my melanin poppin’ to the gawds..and I ain’t mad about it!

Day 4. That’s when it really set in. I’m home. 2/8/17 12:03 PM “I often wonder where my home will be. Where will I find MY place. Where do I belong?” Today I got the answer to a question I’ve asked my entire life. My home is right here..in my heart. Moving, loving in motion, is … More Where Do I Belong?
Friends. Can’t live with them. Can’t live without them. Friendship is very important to me. We all need someone to connect with. Since I’ve been on the run, I’ve met many people that I now consider friends. The lady at LAX who was headed home from her 100th (lol) class reunion. The wild scooter … More Making Friends Abroad
My time in Ubud has been very fun! One of my favorite activities so far was visiting the Ubud Botanical Interactive. My little hippie heart almost popped due to the excess of love/happiness at UBI.
