after almost a couple of months away from Bend, i go back with my heart bursting with gratitude. life has taken me to live in many cities throughout my life for many different reasons, and in all of these places, i have people i love deeply: my biological family, my spiritual family, my heart family, my friends. i could not be luckier. it is amazing to have many people in many places because i get to travel and see so many people i love everywhere, but it also has its challenge
the challenge of constantly saying goodbye. of detaching. of feeling someone's absence and being ok with it. of sometimes having to reminding myself i am far from alone, when those feelings of loneliness start to creep in. the challenge of not having all the people i love geographically close by all the time, and knowing they/we are still together despite the miles between us.
i can say that there is not just one single place that feels like home to me. home is not just where my stuff is, where my bed is, or where i spend most of my time at. home is/are all of these places. home for me, means all of you: the people in my life
to the people who i have known for entire life, some years, and the ones who just came into my life in the past month: thank you for a very special time in different little corners of mexico. once again, i prove that here is no place as magical as here. see you again in a few months! .
