We’re returning to GZ tomorrow. What a wonderful trip this has been! I am feeling quite sad to leave Thailand behind and hope to return in the future.
Remember when you were 8 years old and the end of summer vacation was upon you and you mourned in advance for the loss of those summer feelings? In anticipation of the loss you engaged each of your routine behaviors with a feverish intentionality – the last swim, the last sunset, the last evening watching the hot air lanterns rising into the night sky – attempting to commit everything to memory so that once the cold of winter and the dull routine of the classroom became your everyday you may be able to recall the feelings of a different life that was briefly yours. It’s kind of like that.
