|World Map Beaded Tapestry|
And it's funny, because I can get up and sing a song without accompaniment in front of 200+ kids and their parents/chaperons by myself and not worry about a thing, but the idea of traveling alone has me shivering in fear.
I've done it--I've traveled from Wisconsin to New Hampshire to work, then moved to Oregon, then moved back to Wisconsin and from there returned to New Hampshire and Massachusetts for more work, and maybe it wasn't the same as traveling, working or living in a foreign country, but it rather felt like it at times. Well, except for the bit where everyone already spoke my language and used the same money and laws as me, for the most part. But it was still traveling far from home.
And I learned, when I got there, that I was more inclined to locate a place of safety/home and stay there than I was to go out and explore these new parts of the country. With the exceptions being when my friends were involved, because as soon as there was anyone going somewhere else, I was more than happy to jump along. And then, you know, cling.
It seems that at heart I'm just a homebody with delusions of travel. *sigh*
