Trailogy of the Emotional Sherpa: Season One: #2
Finding Your Way Back Home
As you recall from the pilot episode, the Emotional Sherpa sets out on a solo expedition to find his way back to home. The TRUE protagonist in the story lost his sense of who he was as a person. This life journey is his quest to find his way home to his TRUE self, and answer the 3 most important Existential questions man faces in his lifetime: Who am I? Why am I here? And, where am I going?
Planning for a journey of this magnitude takes time and energy. A gut level driving force often propels those of this sort to make a break, and go off on solo journeys. Some Emotional Sherpa’s just can’t muster the energy to bother. They’d prefer staying the same, comfortable in their current lifestyle. This Sherpa approach leads to an internal death. When hikers ignore their inner nature, their TRUE selves, they are like DEAD MEN WALKING.
For the last week, the Emotional Sherpa has been alone on the trail. He’s listened to some great tunes, and settled into a consistent pace. This morning he takes out his map and compass and re-calibrates his GPS. The first set of way- points are characters he encounters on the trail. Then, villages of various tribes populate the hillsides all along the Emotional Sherpa’s trail to the top. He stops in and visits, learning of their perils along their own life trails.
Here our his next several way-point coordinates leading to his final destination at the Peak of the Mountain Top: The Village of Genuine Home Builders.
1. Rocket Man and his Time Traveling Wannabes,
2. The Abandoned Village of the FOMOs,
3. Emoters and Thinkers: the chance meeting of Detached Don and Emotional Molly.
4. The Village of Weavers – Tangled Up in Blue,
5. Forest of the Flying Monkeys,
6. The War of the Fence Builders: Tension and Flexion Feud in the Forest.

Follow the adventures of the Emotional Sherpa “roughly” every week :-). His solo expedition is fraught with strong emotions he can’t avoid on his way home to his TRUE self.
Happy trails to you and yours, Allison
