I was a witness to the spirit of the Civil Rights era, seeking ways to find peace as protests against the Vietnam War and urban decay spread turbulently across America. I later functioned as a teacher/professor in South Florida, recently retiring to practice yoga and self-meditation on a regular basis. I continue to strive for “inner serenity” as I travel independently with my wife in our hard-earned freedom.
Recently, such world wanderings provided evidence that life could not be so tightly structured as our daily routines of the classroom had always been. I now recognize that casual encounters with unexpected people, places, and events will provide an important way to achieve my desired self-transformation.
Please join me as I seek to understand the immense power of these unforeseen moments by engaging in “Snippets of a Traveling Mind.” You do not have to travel far to absorb the positive spirit of “now.” Any place will do if your senses are open to the peaceful energy that surrounds you in the present moment.
