All of us have arrived at this moment by traveling a different story. Our narratives have been full of forks, twists and turns, shortcuts and detours, but here we are to intersect with each other in the now. How we got here isn’t just a tale though. It is the very world we live in, inside our head. And as much as we can let others in, they will always see it with a different set of eyes, coming in from another angle. None of our life stories are mundane, for none are alike. Each single one is told for the very first and the very last time.
glimpse: FAMILY PORTRAIT | Since I started my slow and messy voyage around the world, it's been difficult to assemble a family portrait (not that we ever did before I left). Home hasn’t seen me in more than five years and our moments together have become thinner throughout this emotional diet. Fortunately, they visit me out here whenever they can. They know it's my love for the world that made me set out, but that it will be my love for them bringing me back around in the end. No matter how long the detour, I’ll always be homebound.
