On Big Changes

by Kim February 24, 2015

I’ve neglected this blog in the last month and there are good reasons for that. In fact, life has changed so completely in the past few weeks that I feel almost paralyzed as I sit here attempting to explain it all, complex as it is, in a tiny little blog post.

New Beginnings

by Kim December 30, 2014

I’ve found that I don’t need the curved edges of a year to launch new beginnings for me anymore. I don’t need a fresh start to focus on the things I’ve been putting off or ignoring. Life is a lot more fluid for me than it used to be.

4 Years

by Kim December 3, 2014

I started So Many Places four years ago this month, 1.5 years before I left my home in Portland, Oregon to set out to see the world. The real journey began when I started this blog. Because starting this blog was the way I declared, “I’m doing this,” even though I had no idea how the hell I was going to do it.

And our next adventure is…

by Kim September 23, 2014

As the months ticked by we knew we had to make a decision about the future. Would we keep traveling? Would we settle down again? We both agreed that we wanted to keep going but not in the a-new-place-every-week kind of way that we’ve been going for the past seven months.

Saying Yes

by Kim August 12, 2014

I don’t know how it started but in the months since Brian and I came back to the U.S. and began our 7-month trip around the country we’ve developed an unspoken agreement. We accept any invitation that comes our way.

A Letter From the Experimenters

by Kim July 30, 2014

Kim, your life is an experiment. The experiment is to see what will happen if you live every moment in tune with that voice inside your soul, the voice that you’ve dusted off and pulled out from the remains of your old life, the voice that refused to be voiceless.

Life is fluid

by Kim July 13, 2014

One of the best things I have taken away from my study of Buddhism is the knowledge that life is fluid. Obviously, I knew this on some level, but it has been important for me to realize that I am predisposed to think that once something is a certain way it will be like that forever.
