North America | United States of America (USA) | Pacific North West | Washington | Seattle – Happy New Year, 2005!!
I cant believe it is already 2005. It is odd having taken the past 11 months off to travel, I feel I have missed almost a year of history and current events in my own country. Things stay the same yet so many things have changed. I will be eternally grateful for having had this incredible experience, to have learned so much about myself, my country, other countries, the wonderful people I have met along the way, and so many other things that words cannot possibly capture.
I am in Seattle and other than this summer in Santa Barbara at a friend’s house, this is the longest I have stayed in one place since the beginning of March. I have lived out of a suitcase or backpack since mid February. I am ready to have a more normal schedule and life, to be a part of a community, to give back, to enjoy the simple things like having coffee with a girlfriend, going hiking or to my favorite yoga class. I am very blessed and look forward to what unfolds in 2005!
