letting go


after all these years

accumulating everything

to survive

in comfort


while dying



now realizing

how freeing it is

to just let go


to get ready

for my next



where i will have less


but will still

try to be as comfortable

and beautiful

as i can

in my

Gypsy van

      1. Good for you! πŸ™‚ Oh I travel anyway without a car. And without a partner. Buses, trains, planes, boats. Have had boyfriends that I have travelled with before in the past. But hard to find the travelling types.

        When I do get my driving licence I want to get a Camper Van. πŸ™‚ Yes I have been with people that have had cars, campers, etc. But I would love the freedom of having my own. I hope to go travelling again soon.

        You have been talking about that since you started your blog. I think your blog started with you selling your van! Anyway hope you get a new one and get to go on some cool trips. πŸ™‚

        1. Ok good…i didn’t realize you wanted to get your drivers license….i know a few people that never wanted to…so that’s good you have a plan ! My blog started with poetry…and the van came in much later…i have PTSD & anxiety issues….and getting the van was a survival trigger (fight or flight)….then i had another panic attack thinking i’d have to scrape snow & ice off of it all winter every morning to get to work….and thought that would be too hard for me, as i am no spring chicken anymore….LOL. But i kicked myself in the butt for that (getting rid of the van) & being such a chicken to scrape snow & ice off it ……so i want to do it again, as i am obsessed with this idea of having my own roof over my head and not having to be in the situation i am living in now (with someone i do not love). I want to spend the end of my days on this earth being free from toxic relationships….also as i am retired from work now i can’t afford to live in an apartment….so a van will be my home instead, and i will get happier & healthier living alone with nature….and of course meeting other nomads on the road and making new friends along the way !!!

          1. Well I kinda want to travel more than I want to pay rent bills and driving lessons lol! So driving lessons always seem to take a back seat! I do cycle. But only if the weather is okay. I will learn one day when the time is right. I will probably do a crash course!

            Well I hope you get your van going and have the happy life. πŸ™‚ With shiny happy people having fun. πŸ™‚ And close to nature. πŸ™‚

  1. Hopefully i won’t have to be around too many people…i LOVE being alone….but it’s nice to know you have some like-minded friends around occasionally…..lot’s of nomads travel in caravans….but they also love their space….but their is safety in numbers….

    1. Hi ! I just saw your comment πŸ™‚ I am in a constant state of fight or flight …i never know when i’m going to take off…right now i have a huge SUV and am thinking about getting a cargo trailer conversion that has windows and insulated and a fan built in for ventilation…i wanted a van initially, but i can’t afford a good one…there are lots of people living this lifestyle now….you can connect with others no matter where you live ! There is a good web sight that can answer your questions and help you :

      I wish you the best in your plans !!!! Yes i love to stay in touch with you ! Thank you for your comment !
