Hello fair readers.
Do you remember one day, long ago, receiving this email?
Some of you didn't even know me yet. But that's where the journey all began. And tonight, (pending the status of airplanes given Washington D.C.'s massive storm) I am going back to South Africa. Just for a visit, but it's something that I felt I needed to do.
I have so many thoughts about this trip: general excitement...stress about leaving work...curiosity about what I will feel being there in a different capacity...and sentimental that people who supported me and were key to shaping my time during my last journey there, both in person and from afar, will not be a part of this experience.
I had hoped to write more, about thoughts I've been having about this trip and others, but I have hardly had time to breathe in the last few weeks. I will do my best to blog at least once on my trip, but if not, you'll for sure be hearing from me once I'm back.
These curls are heading back to the cape!
