    I can't focus on one thing if there's no need.  And if I do, my mind is still roaming to see the picture from as much sides as possible.  I have a restless spirit indeed.  It was an asset mostly because it's a great tool to fix problems.  When there's...

    I live a pretty dynamic life by most accounts,

    but all this seems to mean is that I now get bored easily and although travel can be grueling I can't sit still. I'm on a different cadence than my family because of this and the time compression I have. And my sex life sucks because of the disconnect (and that means sucks in...

    Free

    I am, and always have been a free spirit trapped in a human body. I feel often as though there is too much of me to live in this small cell of skin and bone. I often moved as a young kid, which i think attributed to my nomad spirit. I will more than likely always a person on the...

    I wish I knew what I was searching for.

    I feel like I'm aimlessly wanting some unknown thing. What is missing? I love my life, I am lucky, I am gifted with amazing loved ones, yet I still feel incomplete. Should I force contentment on myself? Or should I continue to try and find the missing piece? Should I follow...

    To a Seven Year Old, Life Was Senseless...

    The first time I really realized that I was not conformed to this world was at the age of 7. I was obsessed with watching the news and history class. I daydreamed of being stranded on an island somewhere, kinda like Gilligan and his friends. I had a rather unstable childhood and...

    Lonely Wanderer

    Sometimes I like my free spirit. I get very excited about things and love and thoroughly appreciate life experience. A lot of the time though, it gets lonely being too much of a free spirit for stability. I have a hard time being tied down to anything because it seems like...

    I Feel Very Restless At Times When I Write Down Something.

    I feel very restless at times when I write something.There is sudden rush of emotions. I am overpowered by my emotions. Writing is not a release for me in these times. I don't feel at peace with myself .

    I'm never happy. I mean yea I'm happy,

    but after awhile I get bored and have to entertain myself somehow else. I have a million different thing a going on in my mind, and I am in a constant battle between keeping myself and my future safe, and taking risks and living life.

    The Next Adventure

    I'm always looking, searching, dreaming for the next thing. I get bored easy. I guess being artistic, it might come with the territory, but I'll start one project and immediately start looking ahead to the next. I finish what I start and enjoy it, but the rush, the excitement...

    That's Me

    It's the "Tiger" in me. The Chinese say that it is very difficult to have a daughter born under the sign of Tiger. They are hard to marry off. Too aggressive. I agree.

    The Restless Times.

    There's a restlessness that lives in me, and it asks 'what are you striving for, who are you pining for, why are you trying so hard!' And I just lie there and chant 'I don't know, I don't know, I don't know'...until sleep overwhelms me. At times I have the persistent, niggling...

    Restless,

     I enjoy change, when things are the same for to long it makes me nervous and I usually have to change something. I like learning new things and experimenting with different ideas when I can.
