On the other side

I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.  —Mary Anne Radmacher
“I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world. ”

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.
