This trip has been healing in so many ways, and for reasons I can't totally identify in their particulars. Perhaps it's something to do with being out of my element, in a new place, spending concentrated amounts of time with good friends, and being surrounded by incredible amounts of beauty. Whatever it is, it feels as though I've left something heavy and hard behind that allows me to inhabit my reality with a greater awareness of the grace that already surrounds me, and with less of whatever it was that kept my soul from smiling again.
I knew I needed this.
