I'm too old and settled to enjoy the nomadic lifestyle anymore. Plus I need my internet - lol. But when I was a young Hippie I'd hitchhike all over the continent with my guitar over my shoulder. Drop in on a jam club and sit in with the band, hook up with a chick (if I got lucky) and/or get an invite to sleep over at a Hippie pad, stay in that town maybe a few days and then stick out my thumb and go. I loved the serendipitous freedom of that lifestyle.The Old Silly
Interesting proposition, Enid. Unlike, Marvin, I've been settled in one spot (Nashville) most of my life. My experience as a nomad has been in the business world. I've shifted about between no less than 15 jobs during my working career. Now that I'm retired, I've settled in as a mystery writer. I'd hate to have to move again. As you say, I've accumulated tons of junk I'd have to do something with.
Ah, we do change a lot during our life span. No wonder relationships form and break down too.
