~ Sometimes I lose my cat — On some occasions I'll post a photo of Willow and you'll see she's wearing a leash, other times not. But the decision to let her roam free minutes after I arrive at a new camp is not one which I take lightly. Just like us, whether we allow ourselves to or not, she wants to be free from restraint. She wants to roam and play free. She wants to discover and explore. I feel that to restrict this as her 'owner' would be to deny her of the life experience that she deserves. So. Sometimes I take a risk. But it doesn't always go smoothly. Sometimes I lose my cat. Sometimes she won't come home for a while and I will worry like nothing else. But the fact is that she always does come home and when I hear her jump up the ladder at the back of the van I know everything is okay in my world. I provide her the opportunity to be a cat. A van cat. A forest cat. A beach cat. Much like I have afforded myself the opportunity to be whatever I want to be. So as she curls up on my legs at night, purring after one of her little adventures, I think about what I am getting to experience. But also back to the risks I took to get where I am today and the people who helped me get here, and I know that no matter what happens it was all worth it. 23 days away and counting. �Near Boomanoomana, NSW
