Makes no sense

This is like a non sequitur, except it's whatever is Latin for "it doesn't start, either."

I've been thinking lately about my erstwhile life in Spud, and whether I would have been even more successful if I were who I am now. Which you can quickly see is circular, because I would not be who I am now if I had not lived in Spud when I did.

Still, it's a good question. I've had sticks-and-bricks places to sleep and live for two years, but Spud is not unpacked. She is ready to split the scene at a half-moment's notice. There's clearly something still in place, both in my head and in the hatch of my car.

I don't want to live in Spud right now. I'm content and peaceful, and my life is varied enough to keep me entertained. It's possible that that life was just long enough for [whatever] to happen for me. But, because that life was often full of questions I wasn't ready to answer, and answers I had no questions for, now I wonder what I could learn now that I didn't learn then.

But, that's all Bob Loblaw, because today the wind is blowing and I'm enjoying it as a concept instead of an active and seasick element of my day.

Blogger isn't refreshing your feeds for me, which may be refreshing for your feeds.

OMG! Living in a CAR? I lived in an RV and it made huge changes in me, but I had a HOUSE around me. Living in a car would have changed me so much more. Talk about being self-reliant! I just couldn't have done what you did, so whoever you are today has to be different than if you handn't done it. Don't you think? Aren't you proud of those adventures, just the adventure of living in a car?

I am proud, Barb, or maybe satisfied that it happened that way. I'm sure I'm a different person because of it; hopefully more self-confident in my survival skills. :D

We evolve... Although I am relatively certain I could not have lived in my car, even if my car IS somewhat larger than Spud! 😉 I recall some week-ends in a pop-up camper when my boys were pretty young, and how thankful I was for a hot shower when I got home!

Karen, I still haven't lost my astounded gratitude for hot showers!

Life is all about change. If you are doing the same thing year after year in the same place then you are in a rut. You my friend are rutless.

"Rutless" is a delicious compliment - thank you, Contessa!
