New Beginnings

14 November 2010
"Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous."--Carrie Bradshaw

I have a had profound epiphany. "I am finally home." I have had such lovely encounters with individuals this past week, some that have left me speechless. Some that have filled me with hope and some that have healed parts of my wounded soul. But I knew that the latter would happen here in Italy. Italy is such a warm, welcoming and healing place. It is like the hot springs for the soul. A rejuvenating balm that sends sadness to the desert where it dies. A place that brings back laughter long forgotten.

I am happy, content even. I feel free. This does not mean that there aren't any hardships in my life. I still have not found a job. But what I have found is the most important thing in life--inner tranquility.

This blog is dedicated to all the relationships in my life, new and old. To the girls here in Italy that have been gracious and kind. To the men who have been flirtatious and sweet. And to my friends and family back home that have been supportive.

Thank you
