June 14, 2010 one year
a year ago my life changed.
a year ago i stepped on a plane and never looked back.
a year ago i leapt out of my comfort zone.
a year ago i met the most amazing, thoughtful, intelligent people i’ve ever met.
a year ago i left my heart under a different hemisphere.
a year ago i went to south africa.
i cannot believe it has been a year. at this time last year i was running around packing last minute items and spending as much time with candace as possible. at this time last year i was all nerves, nerves, nerves and excitement. i cannot believe how much has changed between then and now. i am a completely different person, yet utterly the same.
my heart hurts today, you guys. i miss south africa like i might miss a lover. i think about it every day. literally.
i just want to be again.
but i can’t. so i’ll run today instead. i’ll go to yoga tonight instead. i’ll invade a friend’s house to watch all the world cups today instead where, if only for a sliver of time, i can watch snapshots of the country who ran off with my heart a year ago.
