yesterday, ryan asked me, “are you going to write about your trip?”
immediately, and without thinking, i said, no.
i tried to explain to him that the trip was less about sight-seeing and more about time with my family and friends, less about documentation and more about experience. with all the blasts from my past and first-time hellos, it should have been overwhelming, but it wasn’t. it was everything i wanted it to be and more than i could ever have imagined.
today, i daydreamed i was back on the seattle pier, with the sun beating down on my right arm and my eyes pointing past the clouds. i remember thinking, “this, right here, this is vacation.” i asked my mom, dad and brother to leave me there and come back for me later. i wanted to take everything in and forget not a single thing.
