Everybody needs a project. No doubt about it. The question is: what kind of project it should be. One that really excites you? One that really challenges you? One that will change the world a little? One that supports your family? One that realises a dream you’ve always had? One that realises someone else’s dream?

Whatever it is, it has to be one that keeps you going and interested, it has to make sense to you.

This year, Pádraig and us arrived in Santiago, finishing the Camino we started many years ago.

Next year, we’ll go on a roadtrip himself and a friend had planned, or at least part of that journey, through the USA and Canada up to Alaska. One of his friends gave him a guidebook to Alaska when we were still in Hamburg.

After the summer, this journey will become our new project. It’ll keep us going.

Don’t settle down and sit in one place. Move around, be nomadic, make each day a new horizon. You are still going to live a long time, Ron, and it would be a shame if you did not take the opportunity to revolutionize your life and move into an entirely new realm of experience.
