I brought with me, one of my favorite books, called Tales of a Female Nomad by Rita Golden Gelman. I first read her book when I was in art school and her nomadic adventures inspired one of my sculptures of a blue footed boobie bowling pin set. Since I was a girl I've wanted to be a nomad, so Rita's story clicked with me. I wanted to start off this adventure hearing about her inspiring story.
Since I've been on the road three people have asked me if I've read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig. I've had my eye on that book for a while. Then one of my hosts gave me a copy! Thank you James!
