2. Traveling Philosopher

Spencer and I think a lot alike, which is to say probably too much. We are both the kind of spirit that takes solace in what some might call the over analysis of situations. But it’s who we are and because of that I always look forward to his new and expertly written posts. This one is of course no different and I challenge you to read it without being both moved and inspired at the same time.

Personally, I enjoyed this post because I have had a staunch anti-bucket list position for a long time and I’m thrilled I finally know someone who agrees with me.
