im writing this from the Detroit airport. It has a tram, which has provided a bit of people watching since I'm here for three hours. This morning my friends , my mom and I went to Waffle House to have breakfast before I left for the airport. Sitting there this morning, and over the last couple weeks as I've been with friends and family, I realize how lucky I really am. I am currently carrying around a bag of letters that my friends and family gathered. I have to resist the temptation to open all of them this very moment.
I am excited to go to Cambodia. I don't know what to expect, but I know it's the right thing for me right now. It doesn't make a lot of sense and I know it makes a lot of my family/friends sad to see me go. It makes me sad, evidently I cried in my sleep on the last flight.
This journey, this leap, would not be possible without the community I have. They are the foundation that my life is built on. I am blessed that my life has these people in it. I am loved and thought of, despite the crazy that this next step is.
Please know that I love you all deeply. That my life is richer and fuller because of you. That yall are what makes my life bright. I can do these crazy things, because I know yall believe in me. I'm strong because you made me that way.
I will be keeping this blog up (hopefully purchasing the domain). I don't know when I'll be able to write next, but hopefully by the end of the week.
I am going to do a newsletter, so if you want to receive that, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a few more minutes and I'm getting on my flight to the other side of the world!
