Went for a drive last night around the city with the convertible top down, not many more nights this year that I’ll get to do that. I sometimes chide myself unnecessarily for driving without a destination – I am, after all, contributing to climate change every time I drive – but the benefit to my psyche and wellbeing is worth it. Just having the feeling of being a part of the world is worth it.
I’ve been in this city for a very long time. I question whether it would be good to move to another place – you do, after all, only live once. I’ve also been reminded that there’s a lot of security I get from where I’m at though, maintaining my situation. So the answer is simple: travel more.
