For someone who used to spend more time on foreign soil than not, leaving the country in the past few years has become a rarer event, predominantly the result of starting my own consultancy and then moving it from Boston to the west coast.
We all make compromises and sacrifices at various stages in our lives, and this was a significant one for me.
'Foreign soil' time has had such a dramatic and positive effect on my life and who I've become, domestic adventures alone barely satisfy my hunger. It's also a time when you get tremendous perspective on how the rest of the world views Americans and gain empathy and a greater understanding for how someone else may prefer to live........in my experience, its often richer, fuller and more colorful.
Thanks to a sleepy August and fabulous client support, I recently ventured to central America, where I wrote -- not blogged -- for the duration. In the coming days, I plan to upload my thoughts from that journey, all of which were drafted in a beat-up notebook using pens and colored markers.
Photos will accompany many of the posts, which I hope will add texture to the landscape and people. My friend Ray contributed some of his thoughts to our tale. I suppose that means my blog will be a mish-mash of technology 'stuff' and a trek over the next week or so.
