About Me

July 2019 UPDATE – A lot has changed. Stay tuned 🙂

**********

My name is Keith McGuinnes.  I’m from Boulder Colorado and have created this blog to document my year as a Vagabond, a self-titled Pilgrimage to Nowhere. In 2009 I left my career at IBM and graduated with an MBA from the University of Denver. One could say I’m trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up… This trip is much more than just travel and seeing sights. Its a journey, one that has no beginning and no end.

My eyes already touch the sunny hill,
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has its inner light, even from a distance–

and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it, we
already are;
a gesture waves us on, answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind on our faces.

— Rainer Maria Rilke
