What have been the event horizons of your life - the moments from which there is no turning back?
Colorado. And the triumph of knowing I conquered the mountain. In more ways than one.
D.C. And learning who I was and what I offered the world.
Albania. Learning what the world, and love, had to offer me.
Dubrovnik. For teaching me about my preferences for off-the-beaten path at times. And my preferences for the well-traveled tourist track at times.
Mt. Fuji. For teaching me that the path always becomes clear, even through the densest fog.
Tokyo. Where I learned that the right friends and the right adventures make life simply magical.
Albania again. When I realized the right love warms even the coldest nights.
Scotland. For finding a bit of home and learning that it is possible to be homesick for a place you've never lived.
Dubai. For teaching me all about all different kinds of mirages.
Chicago. For finding a home. A place where I belong.
