“It is all inside of one’s self, to me. I travel because there are pieces of me scattered all over this planet. Each time I go someplace new, I find a piece of me I didn’t know existed, another life I could be living, and a little bit more soul which I would’ve never had if I would’ve stayed home. In the run of things, if you visit the loss and the history of a place, while you are there, you connect with a past you can mourn. I love that empty and lost feeling. It forces you to chase your own demons.”
