the open fields talk to me

“When I was younger I had such a strange idea of living. I never went anywhere because I thought you needed money to have adventures. And I realize now the silent pressure of my culture made me think if I went somewhere I had to buy something. That an adventure needed a souvenir. Well now I know differently. A tank of gas and twenty extra bucks is more than enough if I bring my mind and my eyes and know how to make conversation with people. And even if I don’t talk to people, the rooms and the streets and the open fields I’m in still talk to me. You in contact with the world around you, that’s what adventure really is.”
