I came across a BBC article this week over my morning coffee that brought me to tears, which, honestly isn’t that hard to do. But, this one was particularly emotional, because it’s something I talk about all the time and have experienced first-hand.
I’ve been avoiding this website for, well, years now! Why? Because the last two and half years have been almost too much to process. There has been so much change and such a deep dive into my own emotions that I haven’t wanted to face it, at least not publically. And, that’s not to say that it’s all been bad. In fact, most of what has crossed my path in the last few years has been pretty remarkable and, at the end of the day, incredibly rewarding.
With all of the changes that have happened over the last year, I’ve neglected to write for some time. Oh well. Living my life just kind of took priority. I truly don’t even know where to start though, it’s been so crazy! But, I constantly crave this creative, cathartic outlet, no matter how silly a simple blog may be. So, I’ll eventually get back in the swing of regular updates. Anyway, I do have a valid excuse, as my life has been changing in big and exciting ways!
As the weather swelters and summer approaches, my days in the south are finally numbered. After years of wishing my time here away, having never truly fit in, it’s time to move on. New adventures await! But, before I can look ahead, I’ve become overwhelmed with unexpected love and nostalgia for this place that I long fought and, let’s face it, has always fought (no, more like brutalized!) me.
