Why just move to Italy?
Why suddenly decide to become a teacher in rural Patagonia?
Why go around the planet the long way through India and England to your native Colorado?
Why move to a remote Scout Camp in Iceland?
Why move back to Korea, leave, go to Vietnam, then go to Iceland again?
Why move to Hanoi?
I defer to Neruda.
“Me defundí, no hay duda,
me cambié de existencias,
cambié de piel, de lámpara, de odios,
tuve que hacerlo
no por ley ni capricho,
sino que por cadena,
me encadenó cada nueva camino,
le tomé gusto a tierra a toda tierra.” – Adioses
I diffused myself, there is no doubt,
I changed myself in many existences,
I changed my skin, my lamp, my hatreds,
I had to do it
Not by law nor by caprice,
But by chain reaction
Each new road enchained me
I tasted the earth in each land.”
