The American Nomad…

by | Jan 25, 2016 | Blog | 0 comments

I caught sight of this documentary last week, titled ‘American Nomads’… It was an interesting, if melancholy, enquiry into America’s historical nomadism, with itinerant cowboys and wide open spaces, and its current cohort of nomads…

Our great big world carries so many life stories, and being granted a glimpse of another’s history is such a privilege.

If your life story is both blessing and challenge, get in touch: rachelcason@explorelifestory.com, perhaps I can help relieve some of the burden and walk along side you a while…

Have a watch (22 days left to view it online) and let me know what you think…

The Third Culture Kid drive to “be good”

I’m currently sat at my desk in a mild slumpy grumpy space. It’s because I’ve eaten too much sugar, and drunk too much coffee and now I feel I need a good long lie down. I want to hide from myself, because I’m cross that I over-indulged. However, given that I’m me, I’m feeling curious as well as grumpy – why did I do it? Why did I eat and drink more than was good for me? Now I’m getting all philosophical and asking the BIG question – why do we do what we don’t want to do, and why don’t we do what we want?
