goodbye asheville...

7.28.2010







the few belongings i've had here with me are snug in my luggage once again. i'm sitting in a completely empty room that was full of books, random pages, and scattered pens for the past seven weeks...now it's just me and my laptop surrounded by white walls. this summer has taught me many beautiful and necessary things. i struggled. i triumphed. i saw. life is just that much more clear to me now. i'm feeling more and more like my soul is becoming refreshingly like these bare walls: honest, simple, solid, true. i'm ready to laugh. i'm ready to cry. i'm ready to have no answers. i'm ready to love those closest to me (especially ceej whom i haven't seen in three long weeks!). i'm ready for the ebb and flow. i'm ready to work. i'm ready to see this world. and i'm definitely ready to leave the humidity behind.
i'll see you when i see you.
