Sometimes I feel a lot like Christopher McCandless (Alexander Supertramp)

I watched a movie yesterday that I said I'd never watch again. (watch out for the law of attraction) It compelled me to write my story "Anchor" this morning.  The movie is called Into the Wild. Such a sad movie and yet so full of hope. Sometimes I feel a lot like Christopher (Alexander Supertramp) in this movie and I think if I had known I had the choice... in other words, if I knew then what I know now, I might have done exactly what he did. Burn all of my money and I.D.s, and walk out on society and into the wild. If you can deal with the feel of the movie and it interests you, watch it. If not, perhaps do what I'm going to do next; read the book. " I knew all the rules but the rules did not know me. "

"In a compelling book that evokes the writings of Thoreau, Muir, and Jack London, Krakauer recounts the haunting and tragic mystery of 22-year-old Chris McCandless who disappeared in April 1992 into the Alaskan wilderness in search of a raw, transcendent experience." - (Source Review)

Guaranteed - Eddie Vedder
On bended knee is no way to be free
Lifting up an empty cup, I ask silently
All my destinations will accept the one that's me
So I can breathe...
Circles they grow and they swallow people whole
Half their lives they say goodnight to wives they'll never know
A mind full of questions, and a teacher in my soul
And so it goes...
Don't come closer or I'll have to go
Holding me like gravity are places that pull
If ever there was someone to keep me at home
It would be you...
Everyone I come across, in cages they bought
They think of me and my wandering, but I'm never what they thought
I've got my indignation, but I'm pure in all my thoughts
I'm alive...
Wind in my hair, I feel part of everywhere
Underneath my being is a road that disappeared
Late at night I hear the trees, they're singing with the dead
Leave it to me as I find a way to be
Consider me a satellite, forever orbiting
I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me
