i have the honor of being surrounded by the most faithful mother, sister and friends. for that, I thank God for such a rich blessing. especially when you are with them for 11 hour plane rides.
it takes a certain relationship to spend an enormous amount of time together, experience the vastness and emptiness of the world, to be run down physically and emotional drained, and still find it beautiful...and still have a reason to be grateful for just today.
ps girls- sorry i missed out on the castle.
"Adventure is a path. Real adventure - self-determined, self-motivated, often risky - forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind - and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” -mark jenkins
