Travelling Light Through Life

Imagine a knock on the door in the middle of the night. A departure. An unknown destination.  If you had brief minutes to pack a bag, what would you choose? What conjures the very essence of who you are, where you’ve been and where you are going in your life? 

This is a speech about the benefits of travelling light through life, free from expectations or preconceptions.
