I’ll spare you the details, the drama, the nonsense. I’ll just deliver the pictures. I’ll caption them later.
This post, from August 2009, sums up how I am feeling tonight, at a point in this new adventure where I can begin to use hours instead of days to countdown:
No matter how hard you try, you won’t get to see everyone, do everything and be everywhere you want to be before you leave. So, just let it all go.
Matt, far left, has been one of my closest friends since 1994. And, for something like 8 years, he has taught in Myanmar, Taiwan and, most recently, The Congo. That first and third one are particularly noteworthy, considering the isolation and unknown nature of them. I think it’s pretty inspiring, especially since I am now less than one week away from my return to South Korea.
