Postcards from Real Life: Re-entry
Dear friends, my head is spinning from the dizzying effects of re-entry after our 6-week expedition. Processing not only the beauty of the experience but also the struggle of making it all come together will take some more time. I promise there are lots of posts in draft though.
Coming home from any journey usually meets with mixed emotions, the gratitude of home mixed with the melancholy of an ending. What I haven’t shared with you, simply because it generally falls outside of the the area of this blog, is that right before I left on the groovy Overland Expo to TBEX expedition, I moved into a new Camp Granola HQ here in Georgia. Yes, that means I moved… then promptly packed up and left for six weeks. Knowing I’d be returning home to a loft full of boxes and all sorts of mundane moving logistics that need to be handled didn’t exactly make me excited to step through the front door.
But when you return and a wonderful friend shows up on your doorstep with a bottle of wine and having missed you, what more of a homecoming can a soul need?
So cheers to good friends and reunions. More to come…
No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. ~Lin Yutang
