The only sure thing I ever knew in my life was that only change was guaranteed and that a home was a dream that solely existed in the depths of my imagination. For these very reasons it has always been my desire to find some permanence all while expertly avoiding it.
Having said a thousand goodbyes and leaving entire lives behind, I became an expert at walking away. I took only what I could easily carry and stored as many memories as my mind would allow.
My last walk was different. I didn’t walk away, I walked towards.
I realized that I no longer have the strength for goodbyes and memories are no longer enough. I am tired of walking and I am ready to rest. I am ready to plant roots, take my seat on the wrap-around porch and watch them grow. I am ready to reach for that dream that I thought only existed in the depths of my imagination.
