炉人 (Rōnin)

Rōnin were samurai in feudal Japan who:

  • Were masterless
  • Wandered around
  • Used their martial skills to make a living
  • Lived by a code (bushido)

I think that’s my life. I think I’ve become a 21st Century rōnin.

  • I don’t have anyone instructing me anymore
  • I’m going on adventures, and planning a long term journey across America
  • Using my tech skills, living ‘hand to mouth’
  • I’m making good decisions, that are right for me

It’s a comforting thought. It reminds me what I’m about:

  • I’m okay on my own
  • I have to keep exploring
  • I’m strong and capable
  • I have high standards for myself to live up to
