We returned from our first DR Tour a few days ago. Even though it cut into our hoarded escape resources, it was the absolute best thing we did. The Tour is all, and so much more than, Barry describes. The North Coast people, land, and culture drew our tired, oppression-weary souls as nothing we could have imagined. Even as well-informed as we felt we were, and being out-of-the-box thinkers as a whole, to physically step outside the box, far removed from the influences that bombard our minds and bodies incessantly, was an unexpected shock. But it was when we stepped back INSIDE the box that the greatest shock wave of reality hit. Even “well-informed” people are numb- and often misinformed. There is a time for thoughtful consideration. That time is gone. Do not hesitate, do not vacillate. Just get out.
