We’re leaving in a few hours. It has been a week of farewells and three months away from home…well, that feels like a long time to be away.
Today, I am grateful for the wise counsel of Eve Wintergreen. Last week, we were at a very loud party, and in a quiet corner I was telling her about the tears that have been so close to the surface, every time I think about leaving. She reminded me that the pain I am feeling is because of the stretch that comes with big emotions. It is the stretch that enables us to grow.
This is a big stretch.
