Ruby and I are at a rest stop in the desert near Dome Rock, Arizona. The sun is feels like it’ll set this little camper van on fire soon; we’ll go up in smoke if we don’t hightail it outta here!
I couldn’t email you on Wednesday as usual because I got lost in the flow of my latest video. It’s my favorite type to make: I weave highlights of a great experience with encouraging tips. I’m gonna try to make more videos like this.
In this video — How to Feel Comfortable Anywhere: 7 Easy Ways to Fit in When You Live & Travel Alone — I share clips of my time volunteering at a nomadic gathering for women called Rubber Tramps on the Road with a few ideas for fitting in when you feel like you don’t belong.
A pig called Empress is the star of the video. She travels with her best friends (a dog and a human) in a camper van.
When I wrote Loving What Is When You’re Uprooted last week, I had no idea how much fun I’d have in Quartszite, Arizona. I met women who are not only uprooted, they’re independent, resilient and adventurous. I didn’t feel like I fit in when I first arrived, but I do now 🙂
Stay cool (or warm if you’re in a cold part of the world!),
