As you're abroad
What is happening right now is you're building a set of experiences, some of which only a few others will share and understand, most of which will be yours and yours only. And it is probably those that will have the most lasting effect on you.
Then you go back to what some people will call reality. And I'll tell you, coming back is far more difficult than going and being.
I'm still here in spirit, thinking about you every day. I'll be all here soon, as I come back.
