Greetings from Bogota! It's been quite some time since I've written....(over a month!) sorry for the lack of updates, but life here has been absolutely crazy and busy but incredibly amazing. I've finally settled in and found sometime to give a brief update on life in Colombia (a short one... but hey ... it's … Continue reading Life in Colombia!
I found this journal entry from October 24, 2014 and just felt the need to share it .... These past few days have been rough. Living in a big city it's very easy to feel alone and lost. I am constantly surrounded by people yet I just feel so alone. It's so hard being in … Continue reading October 24 2014
In a way lately I feel somewhat trapped between two lives. Both here and there, yet not really totally in one place at all.

In order for the next chapter in my life to start, the current one must come to an end. And both accepting that and moving forward with it is something I have been struggling with, but I am accepting it and instead of viewing it as an end, viewing it as a new beginning. This … Continue reading It’s the end, but also the beginning
The saying goes "collect memories not things" .... but sometimes when you're living abroad it's very difficult to not wind up doing both. As I prepare to move back to America after living in Barcelona for 2 years, I am realizing how much random crap I've accumulated. But along with all this random crap comes … Continue reading collect memories, not things… or both?
The point of a maze is to find its center. The point of a labyrinth is to find your center. The other day I was exploring the labyrinth here in Barcelona. The park is absolutely beautiful and it's a pretty quite and relaxed place to spend an afternoon. It was a place … Continue reading The Labyrinth of Life
