I’ve always suffered from had a severe case of Wanderlust. Nearly a decade ago, I dropped everything and flew to South America to spend a year teaching, learning, and traveling.
One of the most poignant memories was the opportunity to spend several days at a shaman’s house deep in the Amazon rainforest. The oppressive heat and humidity gave rise to the most thick green vegetation I had ever seen in my life! These fingerless mitts, with their wandering vines and leaves, remind me of this adventure.
Where will your next adventure take you?
