Where Do You Want To Start?

All of time and space; everywhere and anywhere; every star that ever was. Where do you want to start?

-The Doctor, Doctor Who

It's 3:24 am, and I've been in bed for a good minute, wanting and trying to fall asleep, but, instead, thinking of a thousand different things and people (some of whom I shouldn't). I've made so many positive changes in the past year, and yet, I feel as though there's still more to do. I know I'm on the right path, but there's something missing. Like I need to refocus, even though this year has been all about that. Refocusing, recovering, and rediscovering.

Maybe it's that last part that's on my mind.

I now have the ability to travel anywhere I want, and I had a great idea for it. Originally, I thought to eat at a lil' local eatery in any city I went to. Fly over, hop on a bus or train, and grab a bite. Maybe do that like two times a month. With pictures, of course. But, what if I drew a part if each city while I was there? It'd be like an art diary of my travels.

The more I think about it, the more I like it.

And that's where the quote comes in. I've loved that quote since the first time I heard it. The promise of adventure and wonder behind it is amazing to me. And it fits in with this year, I think. This year in which I've faced my fears, made bold, life changing decisions, taken strides towards doing what I want to do with my life... I see so many people who are stuck, or think they are, in their everyday lives, and I wish I could convey that sense of wonder to them. I wish I could say that there's so much more to life than all the meaningless materialism, the image people work to uphold, the jobs they take just to make ends meet. There is more, and we are capable of more, if we work up the courage to just try. That was enough for me to feel better about myself than I have in a while. We are all capable of that.

The question is, to anyone reading this and considering what I've said, where do you want to start?

Me, I want to start with some real New York-style pizza.
