Boston was surely a learning experience. I met what I can consider my "other side of the coin". More on that in my emotional blog, though. Another thing for the emotional blog is how I fell for a person in Boston. I confessed like, but only time will tell if it's love. Boston had a lot of sad lessons that I need to learn, though. I reached out to fellow travelers about how to get something more independant so I could have time to reflect on myself and everything I'm learned and been through. I asked though that means I was more familiar with as an idea, but someone suggested I camp in the woods and privacy and reflection is what I'm looking for. At this point and time, I can't say I'm against it.
Squatting has been at the forefront of my mind, but it might be time to take the suggestion to put that aside. Squatting has a lot more questions of safety than camping. If I really want to be able to relax and not be distracted so a new venue of options is likely the best way to achieve that.
As for Boston, not much was done there. I ended up having to stay with some people for a month. It was a trail experience that I needed to go through. In a month I met a lot of other traveler, and that was very exciting! I met some Aussies, and I take on their accent whenever I think about them, and one of takes on mine! I can say I know people from China, Canada, Spain, Italy, and Brazil! And, those people have been to so many other places and have done so many other things, and continue to do so! It's exciting to know them, and to meet more new people!
The UU church of Dorchester was a lovely and loving place! They pointed me to the Lucy Stone com-house and met the great people there. It was refreshing to be with such calming people.
I also had a great time at the St. Patrick's day parade. It had to be a long parade, because I got the end of it at 4:30 and it started at at 1. I met some music performers as I walked the route. I got beads, danced with people, and got a beer.
At least 5 people told me not to go to Boston and at least 5 more people told me not to go to the St. Patrick Day parade, and I'm glad I listened to none of them. However, in the future I will be more app to take well-meant advice. Boston was still rough, and there is a lot I dislike about the place. The whole northeast has been very emotional times for me. I really do need to sit back, be alone and reflect on everything without being under watchful eyes everywhere I go.
As for future travel plans, I have a health issue I should stop putting off, as well. It's something in my neck. I also have an issue with my right hand, now. I'm hoping Twin Cities will be what I need it to be long enough to get all my current pressing matters straightened out, before moving on in my travels. If not, I'm going to continue on with my plan to go to the west coast but skip going trying to go to Las Vegas, NV and Arizona. I'll go back to New Mexico for the weather due to needing the health care. That's really not a bad place to send winter. Come spring I'll head to L.V. and back to Arizona but not necessarily back to Phoenix. However, I know someone in Phoenix now so it's a higher possibility.
