I found myself at home this morning when I woke up. It was a significant change to the last time I woke up in a bed, which was in Bangkok. I feel this deep loss that I cant quite explain. This last month with all of you seems unreal. I find it very hard to put into words the experience that we all had in Thailand. I don’t think I will ever find those words. I was telling my mom a story that involved a Tuk tuk ride and realized that she didn’t know what a tuk tuk was. Everything that became so normal for me suddenly seems very foreign.
I just wanted to express how grateful I am that I could have this experience. I’m forever changed by all of you wonderful people and of course I have been forever changed by Thailand. I don’t think anything could have prepared me for loosing so much so fast but I will try to adjust back into my community as well as possible while still remembering and practicing all that I have learned. I hope we can all remember to “jump up and live again.”
