Luckily, I can’t read maps so I wind up almost always lost… But the worst lost I ever got was… in Venice, Italy. Everything looked the same- granted, the same, gorgeous- as far as the streets went- and I was very much “gone.” I will never forget it. Wearing white jeans, a black t-shirt and giant hoop earrings I wandered into a Basquiat book launch hosted by an art dealer from New York. Everyone was eating hunks of parmesan cheese from collossal wheels of cheese while drinking neverending glasses of wine. I drank. I talked. I ate cheese. And somehow, the daughter of an iconic actress invited me along to the next party in the pitch darkness… where I found all the people I had lost during the day… after an aside in a speedboat.
It was a day to remember, and somehow I never panicked. But, then again, its hard to panic when you are in paradise!
Don’t worry as much. Go off the grid a bit. Wander. Find new paths. HERE are many reasons to travel more if you have been in one place for a long time. Expand your universe with new roads…! xoxo Dana
