I want to see as much before I depart this earth

Today, as I was going from one home to another, I started thinking about all the places I have visited. Well, I traveled to. I’ve been to all 50 US states, as well as two territories. And, I hate that phrase. I was thinking of the places as I’ve seen a lot. And, I feel there’s many more I need to go to. I want to see as much before I depart this earth. Loss can make you simultaneously both nostalgic and forward-thinking.

In looking back, I consider the city of Los Angeles. I believe it was my 23rd city in which to live. Honestly, I have lost track. Los Angeles is the complete opposite of my beloved New York. Yet, I enjoyed it and found my way to live in it. Every morning, I tried to capture a sunrise. Every evening, I tried to capture a sunset. I was never fully successful. However, when I was, I managed to get some great photos, which reminded me of being alive.

Our time on earth is not all that long. Every moment I wish could be savored. But many things are fleeting. Try to remember as many of your experiences as possible. If there’s one good thing about social media, it is that ability to capture many random moments.

  1. Travel is one of the best ways to create new memories. And you’re right that we only have so much time on this earth so it’s good to explore new places and create those happy memories as much as we can. I hope you are doing as well as you can be. Hugs.
