We leave for Korea on Sunday. How could it have been a month already. It has literally flown by. I felt as if we have been riding the wings of a soaring pegasus touching down only for sleep. I can't describe how wonderful it has been catching up with loved ones. Some of whom we hadn't seen for a year, while others as long as ten years. When did time get so emboldened as to speed past it's allotted speed limit. When did it join Nascar and blaze by so quickly that a fast shuttered camera can only catch a blur.
How does one keep time from moving and yet continue to explore and live? How can I stay in my twenties, be creative and spunky and yet be a grandmother? How can I keep the older generation, my parents, my grandmother, my aunts and uncles from aging and passing on, while still moving through time? What do I even want here? I want everything to stay the same, and yet change at the same time.
The bottom line is I'm happy. Life has been so good to us. But you know what? It wouldn't matter how many countries we've visited, nor how many adventures we have been on had it not been for people like you. People who remain in our lives. People who love us and support us. It's the people who matter. It's the love that we are so generously given that really makes me happy. We go back to Korea in just a few days and I am inwardly conflicted. We enjoy being abroad, saving money and living adventurously, but we will miss everyone here. So thank you. Thank you everyone. Every kind word, every show of support, whether we are home or abroad, thank you.
