I am coming to a crossroads in my life. In too few days, I will be moving back home to California from the Pacific North West. I am excited–but the journey is bittersweet. My love is unsure of his next moves: we don’t know if he will be joining me there. I am also doing some traveling in Europe this summer with my best girlfriend, allowing some time for both me and him to figure things out. I will be doing a lot of writing, and soaking up the images and scents and stories that present themselves to me there (much of which will hopefully be shared here, too). I am nervous, but remind myself that change, despite its frequent discomfort, is beneficial. It will all work out for the best–in one way or another.
