“I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world. ”
Mary Anne Radmacher
I’ve been to a few places, though I always seem to want to search for more. In more places. Find new things about the world, and about myself.
Two days into my self-imposed displacement, I’m still just adjusting to the time zone shift, navigating the town, and starting to lean into the solitude of a place with no one I know. It’s been welcoming, and friendly, and quite warm, despite being cold outside. But it’s new and not quite home.
And figuring out what home is – that’s an important part of stepping away. Without perspectives outside of your comfort zones, you’ll miss the richness that any home provides.
